Loses Hard Game 
To Temple Team 

Cherry r«id White Gridders 
Defeat Mylinmen 

Lebanon Valley lost a closely con- 
tested game to Temple U. by the 
score of 13 — 3. The game was. played! 
n Temple's New field at City Line 
and Vernon Road, Philadelphia. On, 
different occasions Lebanon Valley 
lacked the necessary punch to ad- 
vance the ball across the line for a 
touchdown . The playing as a whole 
was not as good as the 1 two previous 
games, for the team showed signs of 
weakness at different positions of the' 
line. Temple seemed to be able to 
pierce the line at will during differ- 
ent stages of the game and a result 
took the fighting spirit out of the 
boys. Neither team scored the first 
quarter, in which Lebanon Valley] 
very decidedly was the superior team. 
Just after the beginning of the sec- 
ond quarter Piersol kicked a field 
goal from the 30 yard line and thus 
scored 3 points for the' local team. In 
the first quarter he missed a field 
goal by a few inches. In the< second 
period Temple also scored a touch- 
lown when Gugle hurled a snappy for- 
ward to Marcus who paced for the 
first score. They failed however to 
gain the extra point. 

Again in the third period Temple 
went through our line and brough, 
the ball to the 4 yard line', whence 
Weishing also scored the extra point 
Weishing alsoscored the extra point 
by catching a deceiving pass. On a 
whole the game was well played with 
the -exception that the local team] 
lacked the pep which was present on 
the previous games. With this weak- 
ness outstanding you can expect the 
boys to come through and play the

Monday Evening as the sun was 
appearing from our sight and the

ha PPy crowd of Seniors left their 
Car es of school in the Dormitories 
slowly winding their way to 
Kaufman's woods. The evening

fining so clear and bright in the

Co ^tribution to nature's light and life.

The Freshmen hike was undoubt- 
edly one of the most successful events 
that has taken place in the school 
year. The outing was well attended 
and well planned. About eighty Frosh 
were present which composes a good- 
ly majority of the class. The Fresh- 
men ate their sturdy meal of "dogs, ;; 
unmolested by the prowling Soph- 
mores. It cannot be denied that the 
Class of '30 is well organized. 

"Eggie" Shoyer is largely respon- 
sible for the success of the affair, and 
the chaperons, Prof. Grimm and 
wife, Prof. Hammond and wife, and 
Miss H. E. Meyers are also worthy of 
much praise. 

The class met in a corn field above 
Fairview to be led to a spot unknown 
to them, where the evening would be 
spent in perfect harmony.

Of Enrollment 

Freshman Class Contains One 
Hundred and Twenty-three 

Lebanon Valley College is growing. 
Incoming classes have been increas- 
ing in number for the last few years, 
with the result that the total enroll- 
ment of students is larger. The class 
of 1926 which graduated last Spring, 
had eighty-two members. The vacan- 
cy thus left, however, is being ably 
filled by the 1930 freshmen class, 
which boasts of 123 members. Tb" 
Freshman Class of '29 had only 103 
members on entering, showing an in- 
crease this year of twenty students. 
The prospects for the future of Leb- 
anon Valley loom great in view of 
such a prosperous present. The in- 
coming students for 1926-27 are: 

Homer John Allwein, Joseph Wit- 
mer Allwein, Anna Boyer Apgar,

Several New 
Additions To 
The Faculty 

LSfew Members of the Faculty 
Have Splendid Records 
Before Themselves 

The new school year brings in its 
train new ambitions, new resolves and 
a new outlook upon the affairs of the 
campus. There are new faces to take 
tne places of the old. Not only is this 
change apparent among those of the 
student body, but also among the 
group which we are proud to call our 

First on the list of new faces, we 
find that of Miss Mary K. Wallace, 
who comes to us as Assistant in Eng- 
lish. Miss Wallace received her A. B. 
degree at the Ohio Wesleyan Univer- 
sity, Delaware, Ohio. She continued 
her studies at the University of Penn- 
sylvania and took her Master's de- 
gree at that institution. Miss Wal- 
lace taught for several years at Hollis 
College, Virginia, before accepting the 
position which has brought her here. 
She comes to us highly recommended 
and we welcome her to a place in the 
life of the college. 

Second on our list, is the face of 
Professor M. L. Stokes, of Toronto, 
Canada. Professor Stokes graduated 
from the University of Toronto, where 
he received the degrees of Bachelor of 
Arts, Master of Arts and Bachelor of 
Laws. He also took the degree of 
Barrister at Law at Osgood Hall. 
Professor Stokes has come to assume 
the responsibilities of a department 
new in the annals of the college, the 
department of business administra- 
tion. His ability is counted as being 
of the highest t type and we bid him a 
gracious welcome to L. V. C. 

Some familiar faces which were 
missing for a time are also to be seen 
among those of the instructors. It 
is not necessary to go very far back

W. N. Martin 
Speaks to the 
Student Body 

Missionary, Wife and Children 
on Furlough Visit Their 
Alma Mater 

A very interesting talk was given 
by Mr. and Mrs. W. N. Martin, in the 
Chapel, October 11th. Both are for- 
mer graduates of this institution and 
are serving as missionaries to Africa, 
and are supported by Lebanon Valley 
College. They arrived in America., 
with their son, Paul, and daughter, 
Grace, September 3rd, last. Mr. Mar- 
tin conducted the devotional exercises 
and gave a very interesting talk con- 
cerning Africa, its problems and diffi- 
culties. He spoke of the advances 
that Albert Academy is making and 
the co-operation of the English gov- 
ernment in giving towards the edu- 
cational system in Africa. This pol- 
icy, which is one of adapting the edu- 
cational system to the needs of the 
people, was first started by our own 

He also spoke of the rapid advances 
made by the Mohammedans throvurh 
northern Africa and gave as its CAnfii 
the relaxing of territory in other 
of the world. He clinched h ; s t»Tk v

Vacant Pulpit 
Is Filled By 
Rev. J. 0. Jones 

New College Pastor, Formerly 
of Harrisburg, Now Oc- 
cupies Pulpit 

It will be of great interest to the 
student body and the friends of Leb- 
anon Valley to learn that Rev. J. 
Owen Jones, formerly pastor of Sixth 
Street U. B. Church, Harrisburg has 
been appointed by the Annual Con- 
ference, which was held recently at 
Steelton, Pa., as the college' pastor. 
Mr. Jones comes to Annville with 
high qualifications for his new work 
here with the students which was 
manifested by his former congrega- 
tion at Harrisburg, when his appoint- 
ment to the Annville church was 
learned, for he was loved and res- 
pected as few pastors are 1 by their 
congretations. He was especially 
active in work with young people, a 
fact that makes him especially 
adapted to his new work here. 

The Rev. J. O. Jones was graduated 
from Lebanon Valley in the year 1915. 
During the last two years in college 
he served as student pastor on a 
charge at Mont Claore. Upon his 
graduation form Lebanon Valley the

Traditions of

By Class '30 

Evergreen Frosh Live Through 
Two Eventful Weeks of 
College Life 

Sophomores Are 
Molested By 
Haughty Frosh 

Second Yearlings' Annual Hike 
Interrupted by Frosh, But 
No One Ate 

On Monday evening October 4, the 
Sophomore class held a very enjoy- 
able hike to the Union Water Works, 
about three miles north of Annville. 
Departing in groups of three and four, 
the second year group was soon en- 
tirely off the campus and well on its 
way. Showing their natural inclina- 
tion for learning, the Frosh determin- 
ed to search out their sworn rivals 
and to see if they were planning for) 
eats. With the aptitude usually 
shown by a member of the genus Can- 
is for tracking, they found the unsus- 
pecting Soprs and a surprise party 
was in order with the Freshmen as 
hosts. Not to be outdone, however, 
the Sophs also pulled a surprise, leav- 
ing the plebes looking foolishy hun- 
gry, for as far as eats were concern- 
ed, "there warn't none," on the 
ground, either for the Soph or Frosh. 

Songs and yells were' the order of 
theevening. Led by the inimitable 
Overly sisters, the entire gathering 
soon burst into song. In spite' of the 
fact that they could not eat at thei 
expense of their class enemies, the 
Freshies showed that they had ac- 
quired some learning in the short! 
time they have been here, lor they 
joined heartily in helping to sing the 
school songs. Dr. and Mrs. Harold 
Bennett were' the faculty members 
who accompanied the hikers on their 
trip. Socializing was the plan of at- 
tack on the return trip. Frosh, freed 
for awhile of the restraints of cer- 
tain opressive rules, made the best of 
their opportunity and secured them- 
selves every ava'lable Soph of the 
gentler sex. When the contingent 
of second year men and women re- 
turner? to the campus, the 1 mystery 
which- had been baffling them — — 
,,nr *>r Mystery of the Missing Eats" 

n nre T"o) 

September twenty-second and 
twenty-third marked the modest be- 
ginnings of the great class of '30. On 
reflection they have already discover- 
ed that Matriculation is the first turn 
of a mill of the Gods that turns slowly 
but grinds exceedingly fine. The 
legions that rallily to the banner' 
of Class of '30 are 123 strong, and 
from the very outset they have 
evidenced a real spirit, and havei not 
failed to enter into all the "traditions" 
of the ancient and honorable insti- 
tution of which they now consider 
themselves a vital part. 

The Sophomore class suddenly real- 
ized that there was a Freshman Class 
when their colors came 1 down from 
the chapel, the Adm. Bldg., and 
especially the Chimney top, at which 
junction they were completely 
vanquished and made an ignominous 
retreat, leaving the Frosh banner to 
wave undisturbed. Torn shirts, 
smirched clothes and bloody noses 
characterized the first class scrap. 

Further the Freishmen indulged 
unwontedly in luxuries by purchasing 
loud, flashy, green and red head- 
gearing that has really added a re- 
freshing color scheme to the land- 
scape. They have evidenced a strong 
inclination toward conservative digni- 
ty by wearing at all times black ties 
and black socks. It was feared that 
they would get misplaced so each 
was tied to a large shipping tag; 
which was properly adresised. Some 
took it so seriously that they looked 
in the "Lost, strayed, or stolen" col- 
umn of the Annville Blizzard. 

The Class scrap took place at 2:00 
P.M., Monday, Sept. 26. The Frosh 
fought hard to remove the Soph 
banner from a telephone pole which 
the Sophs were guarding. Even 
though it was generally felt that the 
odds were against the 1 Frosh, it was 
admitted by all that they put up a 

good scrap, fought hard, and lost 

The next night unearthly howls and 
shrieks echoed up and down the halls 
of the men's dorm. In a few minutes| 
all Freshman were marched out blind-, 
folded and guarded. After being, 
marched all over the campus lock- 
step to the tune of "Green as, Grass;; 
"I want my milk," they were put 
through a grill of initiation that 
seemed to just a little more than 
touch the sense' of humor. It has 
been reported that several lost weight 
at the rate of a pound an hour. 

About a dozen found it easy to 
discover that there was a Men's 
Senate. Next morning Heath flared 
forth in a gown from Paris. He bore 
considerable resemblence to the' 
famous painting of the "Bohemian! 
Girl." Zappia began wearing an old 
edition of 'Big Ben." Hafer sporteid 
a sign and began six days of skipping 
because he so willingly made the first 
standing investment in a chapel seat. 
Hazelton was adorned with the 
college pennant, and each noon war- 
bled the Alma Mater from the steps 
of North Hall; likewise Fiorelli's 
mellow voice floated forth, from the 
same place and a sign on his back 
announced the entertainment for each 
noon at twelve. 

The Sophomores attempted to have

How About Some New Yells? 

For some time many of the students of L. V. C. have felt 
the need of some new yells to add "pep" to the athletic events 
which are held between our Alma Mater and her rivals. It is 
evident that we do not have enough good yells for a school this 
size. Some one may say that we have several good yells. Per- 
haps we do have several, but those that we have do not seem to 
be on a par with those of other colleges in our class and further- 
more to use the same few yells at a football game becomes rather 
monotonous to the cheering section as well to the visitors who 
attend the game. We have learned from other colleges that 
they have had some organization put on a contest to secure new 
yells offering prizes for the best ones. These contests have been 
successful in securing new yells as well as arousing school spirit. 
We have been wondering if there is not some organization on the 
campus which will do the same thing for her Alma Mater. Can't 
we have some new yells for the remaining big games of our 
schedule, Mt. St. Mary's, Dickinson and Albright? Come on! 
Let's have a contest for new and better yells at L. V. C. 


Pep! What kind of pep have we here? The kind that fur- 
nishes a subject for conservation? Or the kind that acts and 
gets things done? The student-body has had "pep" preached 
to it from every conceivable angle; it is supposed to be a divine 
fire upon which one is to believe, thrive, and prosper. "Against 
it, nothing can stand," at least, that is the key word in "pep" 
meetings. Bosh! "pep" does not have one chance when it meets 
Bigger "Pep." 

In the campus use of the word pep is usually resorted to in 
connection with games. What for? What's the matter with 
pep about classes? About organizations? . About your ideas'.' 
Wnen you have an idea you believe in it and give it something 
on which to live ; you push it to the front where it may gain recog- 
nition. When yau have an Alma Mater you — well, what do you 
do? You send a cohort of several hundred to a game miles away, 
and they cheer and support the team to the limit ; this, because a 
previous game had raised pep by a few marks. The student body 
was back of the team and made their support felt; they were not 
passive. That we lost to a better team is no discredit; that we 
lost our "pep" should not be quite so obvious. 

Jealousy is a good thing, when it is your pep of which you 
are jealous. That being superior, half of anything is yours; the 
rest depends on works. It is not enough, then, to say you have it. 
Get out and show it! Cheering does not mean a thing, if it is 
done from a sense of duty ; if you do it because it is the conven- 
tional thing, better not run the risk of ruining any vocal talents 
you may «have ; it is lost. Use psychlogical pep ; if one game is 
lost, then the week is all too long until you can show a higher 
spirit and production; if the band fails to arrive, let them know 
they were not counted as a supporting factor ; if a player "slugs" 
let public opinion hold him in disapproval ; if a man is not inter- 
ested because he is not on the winning side, let his companions 
drop him as a hindrance to a first line position ; if affairs are not 
managed so that students can attend activities, let censure be 
given where it is due. 

Why did we win notice and admiration at Penn State ? Be- 
cause of our confidence and showing. Why did we rate two head- 
lines in the recent paper? Because of the two-fold fight we put 
on several Saturday's ago at Harrisburg — the fight in the field, 
and the fight between the bleachers. To fight again, to win back 
what we had then is a bigger task and a right student body will 
meet it. And, last of all, where is the College Band ? 

In almost every line of this there is the word pep; no other 
word would do. If every student had a void which nothing but 
pep would fill, bodies would be erect and at attention when the 
Alma Mater is sung ; eyes and head-liners would center this way.

into the history of campus life in 
order to recall to mind Miss Yvonne 
Green. Miss Green, a graduate of 
the class of 1925, has returned to as- 
sume some of the duties which her 
mother, because of illness, has been 
forced to lay aside for a time. A 
hearty "How do you do?" is our 
greeting to her. 

Professor Paul S. Wagner also has 
brought back to us a kindred spirit. 
Professor Wagner is a graduate of 
Lebanon Valley College, class of 1917. 
After his graduation, he remained 
here as head of the Academy, which 
was then a part of the College and 
also as teacher of Mathematics, asso- 
ciated with Dr. Lehman. He obtained 
a leave of absence, during which time 
he worked for and obtained his Ph. D. 
at John Hopkin's University. He has 
returned to us as head of the Depart- 
ment of Mathematics. 

Glad is our welcome to these our 
new friends and teachers. We look 
ahead to bigger and better things, be- 
cause of what they are bringing to 
us things that will strengthen and 
encourage us in the duties and priv- 
ileges wrapped in the length and 
breadth of our lives.

of the class partook heartily of the 
goodies reserved for them. 

Because of much excitement a num- 
ber of Sophomores were kept up 
until the we : e sma' hours, busied 
with the harrassing details of the 
next day. But no definite under- 
standing has yet been reached as 
to why several members of the first 
year class spent the greater part of 
the night until 5 A. M., to be' exact 
in trying to learn something of the 
methods of the man made famous 
by Sir Conan Doyle. It would be a 
splendid idea for some of these same' 
nighthawking Freshies to read a bit 
of Poe's "Purloined Letter" for 
future reference. It can be truth- 
fully saidi that an enjoyiable time 
was had by all, and itis hoped that 
the two lower classes may continue' 
to be friendly enemies in the future. 

This and That 

The Student Body appreciates 
Chapel speakers. Why? 1 
seems very obvious that the firs 
reason is: "We miss a part or 
whole class period, and Monday 
is an admirable time for them t 
come for who ever knew a stud 
ent well prepared on Monday?' 
Yes, that is one possible expl a 
nation but isn't there another 
one too? Education is more 
than "book" knowledge, it i 
strengthened greatly when su 
plemented by the real experien 
ces of a man or woman who hav 
stood the test of circumstances 
no matter what the circumstan 
ces mignt have been. 

We were glad for the presenc 
of tne Martin's with us. Ever 
ye^r we work for the promotion 
oi tne Martin fund — a term that 
in itself is abstract, unless we 
understand and know the peo- 
ple to whom it goes. Now w 
know them and we were inter- 
ested in listening to the account 
of their difficult as well as ludri- 
cous experiences in that dark 
continent. We enjoyed Mrs. 
Martin's words — yes and could 
have listened to her carry out 
the statement that "the women 
outtalk the men." 

Words ! words ! words ! We lis- 
ten to so many of them, in class 
and out of class; in chapel and 
out of chapel. It is likely that 
more of these words have lodged 
with us than we are now cogniz- 
ant of and when we too shall 
speak of "the Old School" in 
terms of the past — many of to- 
day's remarks will put on a new 
and larger aspect, they will be no 
longer only words, but WORDS 
fraught with much meaning. 

Some of the students have 
been advised to read, "The Ris- 
ing Side of Color," as a supple- 
mentary reading for one of their 
classes. Listen to this conver- 
sation between two such stud- 
ents. "Have you read, 'The Ris- 
ing Tide of Color?' " "Have I 
read it, NO, but why monopolize 
the only copy in the library and 
spend one's preciously good time 
reading when there is so much 
evidence of it all around us? If 
you can't see 'The Rising Tide of 
Color' every time you look at 
some of the Freshmen, and you 
can't read their minds like an 
open book, well, what's the use 
of having Freshmen ? You know 
the Freshmen fellow who graced 
our presence for several days at- 
tired in a girl's athletic togs- 
well his face, or at least his com- 
plexion, would have made a good 
cover for the book. Some of our 
living examples were bound with 
decorative colors, front and back. 
There was plenty of action to 
make the incidents interesting, 
and if the motivaticy power was 
not within the individual it was 
administered externally and any- 
how, whatever the means, thW 
brought results. 

And the heroines — well they 
were "word pictures" without 
words, for who could find any 
words full enough to describe 
them? There weren't two ot 
them alike and yet — we \° ve 
them all !" By this time the first 
student making the inquire d e ' 
tides to turn his attention to 
this book so highly recommend- 
ed, so full of life and action.

members of his congregation at Mont 
Clare were so persistent in their de- 
mands that he remain their pastor 
that he decided to take his seminary 
course at Crozen Theological 
Seminary, Chester, Pa., in order to 
continue his work with them. At the 
same time he took graduate work at 
the University of Pennsylvania, which 
he completed in 1918, being awarded 
the Master of Arts degree and at the 
same time he finished his work at the 
Seminary and obtained his Bachelor 
of Divinity degree. Consequently he 
served; the charge at Mont Claire for 
five^ years which were crowned with] 
success in all respects. Irh 1918 he 
was assigned by the Conference to the 
Sixth Street U. B. Church, of Harris- 
burg, where he' has remained until 
the present time and where he 
established a splendid record for 
during his ministry of eight years in 
that church he received approximately 
four hundred members into the con- 
gregation, which is a very evident 
indication of his success. 

He is assisted in, his work by Mrs. 
Jones who takes a very great in- 
terest in the work of her hus'band. 
He also has two splendid children, 
a daughter of eight years and a son 
of two. 

There has been no regular pastor 
filling the pulpit in our college church! 
since the first of the year when Dr. 
J. A. Lyter, who was serving then, 
became assocate editor of a United 
Brethren publication. 

Without doubt, Mr. and Mrs. Jones 
will find a ready welcome on the 
part of the students body of Leb-| 
anon Valley and the local congrega- 
tion. It is the profound hope of all 
their friends that they will find as 
much pleasure and success in their 
work here as they have experienced

a hike 1 , but the Frosh were on hand, 
found them, and successfully handled) 
the situation so that they came back 
home to their trundle beds at a late 
hour and with empty stomachs. 

The Frosh girls, of course have 
been figuring in the; college life right 
along, and the other day appeared 
decked out in outlandish costumes, 
labelled, and thoroughly painted. 
Their's was only one day, however, 
and since then and henseforth they) 
wear long green ribbons that arq 
nearly as becoming as the jocky caps 
of the men. 

This year, as in years past, quite a 
large number came out for the Scrub 
■Glee Club, and it bespeakfe gtreatj 
talent for the Class to know that they 
all made the neccessary requirements. 
The end of the first night of try-out 
and practice was in the 1 basement of 
the Ad. Bldg. Their voices were 
characterized as being "liquid." Theyj 
did not mind the streams of water as 
far as they were concerned, but they 
rather hated to see a perfectly good 
administration building floated away. 

It was generally hinted that the 
Freshmen were the slowest to geti 
organized and on the job of any class 
for some years, but they did have 
things well enough in hand that they 
Put on a perfectly successful hike. So 
carefully handled it was that thef 
Sophs never even found the place un- 
til it was all over.

Somehow or other, Clio experienced 
difficulty in order to arrive safely in 
Japan with her many cohorts and 
friends. There were several delays, 
that could not have been prevented, 
but Clio never despaired. Finally, on 
Wednesday evening, October Sixth, 
the travellers entered the realm of 
cherry blossoms. A pleasant company 
had gathered to greet them. Bright 
Japanese lanterns were hung from the 
trees, and the throne of the Emperor, 
splendidly decorated, occupied a prom- 
inent place. An entertainment of wel- 
come had been prepared. 

Everybody joined in the playing of 
the games which marked the first 
jvent of the evening. The guests were 
then asked to be seated in the large, 
natural amphitheatre. The appear- 
ance of the Emperor was attended by 
much pomp and pride. Two heralds 
announced his coming. Japanese ac- 
tors, lived for the occasion, enacted 
scenes thrilling, passionate and sor- 
rowful. The first number on the pro- 
gram palpitated with the name "The 
Dance of Death." "Bee" Burrier 
shone in the role of the devoted suitor 
who danced himself to death to win 
the love of the beautiful princess in a 
box, Mary Geyer. A number of lovely 
Japanese ladies' assisted in this dance. 
The next scene was thrilling beyond 
description. An opium den formed 
the setting and Japanese men were 
the characters led by a grim, fierce 
fellow with a sword in his hand. The 
end of the matter was death. The 
scene was directed by Eleanor Snoke. 
The third scene furnished the cream 
of the program. A dramatization of 
an old Japanese story "The Mirror," 
was presented, in several parts. 
Bernice Hoover lived the part of the 
dainty Japanese lady, while Olga 
Freeman proved a loving and gener- 
ous husband. Esther Walmer inter- 
preted the acts in a typical Japanese 

Immediately after the program, the 
Emperor departed for the Palace of 
the Bells, his winter home. This was 
no signal for the guests to retire also. 
In fact greater merriment than ever 
prevailed. Members of Ohio's Com- 
pany were called upon for readings 
and songs, which were rendered with 
great spirit. 

A feast also came within the order 
of the day. Nectar apples, nutty 
sandwiches and cookies of the con- 
sistency of honey, imposed a silence 
upon the party. Later a delicious 
pudding of rice and raisins, raised it 
to the heights of the sublime. The 
wind in the trees and a fruity drink 
put a punch into the meeting. 

With smiles on their faces and joy 
in their hearts, Clio and her friends 
decided to return to their own coun- 
try. Many thanks were extended to 
the hostesses of the evening, to the 
Emperor and the actors and all voted 
Japan a country of charm and grac-

Just as "music hath its charms" 
so the Kalozetean Literary Society 
had in store many allurements and 
charms for the boys when they re- 
turned to L. V. campus for another 
year. Under the efficient leaderchip 
and guidance of Walter Ness Kalo 
has raised her anchor to set sail for 
another year's voyage in literary and 
social circles. The spirit already 
manifested among the boys has never 
been equalled in past years and, more 
than that, it is of the highest, co- 
operative type. 

In creating such enthusiastic 
interest there are two outstanding; 
factors involved. First, on a financial 
basis, our treasurer, on the evening 
of October 8th, made' a public declara- 
tion that Kalo was completely out 
of debt with a nice surplus to be- 
gin the year's activities. Secondly, 
the current year marks the golden 
anniversary of Kalozetean Literary 
work on the "campus green," andj 
accordingly plans are being made 
to pay due respect and tribute to 
that noble organization, whose 
achievements in past years have 
always been of a high and uplifting 

In a formal way, the first literary) 
assembly was held on last Friday eve- 
ning when we were delightfully en- 
tertained by vocal selections from 
David Shroyer '26, Lester Jennings, 
and Kalo Quartet: Piano selections by 
Henry Ludwig; Reading by Darkes 
Albright; and inspiring talks from 
Walter Waggoned and Edgar Shroyer. 
Following this program a "smoker" 
was held during which many acquan- 
tances were formed with the new; 
boys who have already manifested 
much interest in Kalo and her activ- 

The program to be rendered on 
Friday evening, October loth, will be 
conducted entirely by day students of 
near-by towns who are planning a 
a real season of entertainment for 
the boys, to which all are heartilyj 
invited and, especially, the new fel- 




Last Friday evening, the new girls 
were entertained by the Delphian Lit- 
jrary Society on Delphian Playground, 
down by the Quittie. Local color was 
provided by real honest-to-goodness 
see-saws, a swimming match, balloons, 
fancy paper hats,' and lunches done up 
in the customary paper bag. The Del- 
phian Poppy, impersonated by Flor- 
ence Dundore, brought her playmates 
with her to Delphian Playground for 
the purpose of entertaining the new 

The Sailors who entertained were 
no others than Mildred Lane and 
Elizabeth Matthes. These sailors were 
the real thing with their dance "The 
Hornpipe," their sea songs, and their 
amusing yarns. The Twins, Mary and 
Anabelle Overly, seemed to belong on 
the playground with their games, 
dances, and songs. Viola Wolfe did 
her part with some clever readings. 
The Pirates, lead by Ruth Strubhar, 
produced some pantomiming which 
made one's blood run cold. The 
Champion High Singers gave some 
new effects to some very old popular 
songs. Kathryn Wheeler, Esther 
Dicksinger, and Alice Wby gave a 

parody on the face lifting scene from 
the operetta, "Countess Maritza." An 
altogether fitting climax was given to 
the program by the appearance of a 
canoe drifting down the Quittie at 
dusk. The sound of a beautiful voice 
singing, the sight of three spirits in 
the canoe lent enchantment to the 
scene which followed. 

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
held its sixtieth annual re-oponenig 
exercises in its newly remodeled hall 
on the third floor of the Administra- 
tion Building on Friday evening, Sept. 
24. The exercises were in the form 
of a short literary program followed 
by a social hour. The program con- 
sisted of a variety of numbers includ- 
ing the devotional exercises, the in- 
augural addjress by president-elect 
Wade S. Miller, the address of wel- 
come to the old and new students by 
J. Bruce Behney, the last will and 
testament of our recently graduated 
memfbers by Milford Kniseley, a piano 

solo by Jacob Horst, a parody on 
Greenleaf Whittier's poem "The Bare- 
foot Boy," by Millard J. Miller, Slighf 
of-hand tricks and a Japanese sword 
dance by Luke S. Mimura, and selec- 
tions by Philo Quartette. The regu- 
lar program was followed by brief re- 
narks by Professors Grimm, Ritchie, 
Bennett, Wagner and Wallace, all of 
whom are members of the Society. 
Immediately after the program, a re- 
2eption was given to the new students. 
All the events of the evening were 
highly enjoyed by all who were pres- 
ent. The hall was completely filled 
with . Philo members and visitors. 

The second regular literary session 
was held one week later. Another 
interesting program was rendered. 
This program consisted of the follow- 
ing numbers: 

Passing Favorites Samuel Meyer 

Vait a Minute Elmer Keiser 

& Allen Klinger 

Piano Solo Harold Ryder 

Pantomine Sketch Caste of Six 

Living Thoughts Paul Moser 

This program likewise was followed 
by a short social hour, which was fea- 
tured by readings by Elmer Keiser 
and Japanese songs by Luke S. 

On Friday evening, October 8, with 
the hall again well filled, the mem- 
bers of the Society presented the fol- 
lowing program: 

r mpersonations Daniel Pugh 

Vocal Solo Ira Motter 

Reading John Beatty 

Debate — Resolved, That a Small Town 

is a Better Location for a College 

Than a City. 
Affirmative — G. Paul Moser 

Negative — J. Bruce Behney 

Living Thoughts Samuel Clarks 

Remarks Dr. Paul S. Wagner 

A short social entertainment fol- 
lowed the program. After the social 
period a business meeting was held 

in which seventeen new men were 
taken into full membership of Philo. 
This is the first group of the year to 
enter. The large number is due to 
the vigorous efforts put forth by the 
members of the society. This does not 
represent the entire number of men 
pledged to join Philo, for to-date 
twenty-nine have signed the society 
entrance cards. With such an en- 
couraging start Philo is looking for- 
ward to one of the best years in her 
history. The success so far is due in 
a large measure to the efforts of the 
president, Wade S. Miller, and his 
associating officers. 

For Friday evening, October 15, a 
joint session is planned with the Clion- 
ian Literary Society. Through the 
efforts of the joint executive commit- 
tees, an interesting and attractive pro- 
gram has been arranged. An invita- 
tion is extended to all faculty mem- 
bers, students, and friends of Leba- 
non Valley to attend this session.

I Y. M. C. A. Notes | 


A number of the members of the 
Y. M. C. A. were occupied during the 
first few days of school hauling the 
trunks of the students from the sta-J 
tion to the dormitories. This is a 
practice started a year ago and is aj 
great convenience and saving to the 
students, for the service of the Y. M. 
C. A. are given free of charge. Aj 
total of about seventy five trunks 
were hauled. The service in the girl's 
dormitories was more efficient than 
in the boys' for the "Baggage Bust- 
ers" delivered the trunks directly to 
the rooms of the young women whilej 
each fellow was regarded as being 
man enough to convey his own trunk 
from the ground floor to his room.

An experiment was attempted for 
the first time at Lebanon, Valley this 
year under the auspices of the Y. M. 
C. A. During the summer months 
each upper classmen had assigned to 
him one or two incoming students to 
whom he gave any help which he 
thought necessary to a new studenet; 
entering L. V. C. This help consisted 
of advice in the selection of courses 
and assistance' in the process of ma- 
triculation and registration and help 
in getting accustomed to the new en- 
vironment. Although this was the 
first time any such effort had been at- 
tempted, it met with remarkable suc- 
cess. Due to the close relationship 
and intimacy which were created be- 
tween the upper classman and his 
temporary charges this was called the' 
"Big Brother Movement." It is the 
plan of the Y. M'. C. A. to continue 
this movement in future years. 

* * 

At a recent meeting of the Y. M. C. 
A. Cabinet it was suggested that a 
joint hike be held with the Y. W. C. 
A. some evening in the near future. 
As yet no definite date has been set, 
for it is necessary to hold a joint com- 
mittee meeting with the Y. M. C. A. 
in order to form plans for the hike. 
It is likely that the hike will be held 
within a week. It is understood that 
many of the Freshmen male students 
are looking forward to the event with 
considerable eagerness for it will off- 
er an opportunity to become acquaint- 
ed with the other half of the student 
body, a priveledge which they have 
beennn nndnennnnnnnnvbgkqjvbgkqj; 
been denied here-to-fore by rule five 
of the Men's Senate. 




(Continued trom Page One) 

On the day of the hike three Fresh- 
men, Shoyer, Wampler and Hafer, 
went in search of a suitable place. 
This group unanimously decided on a 
small clearing in the woods, about a 
quarter of a mile from Hill hurch, 
completely surrounded by a dense 

About 6 P. M. the group had as- 
sembled, to start from their meeting 
place and after a short hike, were 
well situated far from the searching 

The hikers were due to start eating 
at seven o'clock, so when the eats ar- 
rived, the air was scented with sizzl- 
ing wieners and toasted marshmal- 

About 9 o'clock after the last song 
had been sung, and the fire had been 
put out, the host of Frosh wended it's 
way homeward. The class of '30 is to 
be congratulated on it's first hike.

Lebanon Valley 30, Villa Nova 12 

Lebanon Valley, playing remark- 
able football considering the hot day, 
decisively defeated the strong Villa 
Nova combination, Sept. 5, by the 
score of 30-12. Considering the heavy 
team of Villa Nova, compared to ours, 
we can say with great pride that the 
playing of our boys was of such cali- 
bre that little criticism is needed. 
Villa Novaj intent in beating Lebanon 
Valley, brought four full teams on the 
field. They looked like an army. 
Stuhldreher, former Notre Dame 
Horseman, and coach of Villa Nova, as 
usual used his shock troop brand of 
football. Indeed his team was badly 
shocked. They were shocked for two 
touchdowns, whereupon Stuhldreher 

brought in his first team. They 
seemed little better than the second 
team, although they scored two touch- 
downs. Though Villa Nova obtained 
more first downs, they were made at 
very ineffective times and were worth- 
less. Gelbert was the outstanding 
player of the game, whose punting 
and tackling featured. The backfield 
and line, all played remarkably well 
accounting for the great victory.

The first of a proposed series of bi- 
weekly meeting was held in in the 
chapel Sunday evening, October 10, 
under the auspicies of the Y. M. C. A. 
and Y. W. C. A. A large number 
of students and faculty members at- 
tended. The purpose of the first 
meeting was to encourage a more 
earnest cooperation between the 
students of L .V. C, all of whom are 
members of either one or the other 
association, andl the officers of the 
said associations. The outline of the 
program was based upon this idea 
and, without doubt, the purpose for* 
which this meeting was held was 
accomplished. J. Bruce B'ehney acted 
as leader of the service. The program 
was as follows: 

Prayer by the leader. 

Organ Selection Violet Krone 

Scripture Reading taking from 
Romans 14; 1-19. 

Duet Mary and Arabelle' Overly 

Address by Dr. Paul S. Wagner. 

Prayer by Dr. G. D. Gossard 
In the address by Dr. Wagner the 

students found just what was 
their associations with one another 
hereon the campus. Dr. Wagner chose 
as the basis of his address the' nine- 
teenth verse of the fourteenth chapter; 
of Romans which is "Let us therefore 4 
follow after the things that make for 
peace, and things wherewith one may 
edify another." From this verse Dr. 
Wagner drew a fine lesson of cooper- 
ation. He made his address all the 

more enjoyable by citing incidents 
from his own personal experiences 
while in active Y. M. C. A. camp ond 
summer. He 1 showed that he clearly 
understood the problems confronting 
the Associations on the campus and 1 
offered some splendid advice to the 
"Y" workers. He ended his address 1

Myiinmen Lose 
Tough Battle

Blue and White Gridders Out-

The Mule in Muhlenberg kicked 

once, scored a touchdown, and then 
kicked no more. For Lebanon Valley 

fighting- warriors took hold of the 
reins and tamed the ferocious Mule. 

Thus was the result of the Muhlen- 
berg — Lebanon Valley game at Allen- 
town, October 16, where the local 
team was defeated by the score of 
(6* — 0, That Lebanon Valle'y checked 

the reins is very easily seen in the 
fact that Lebanon Valley distinctly 
outplayed the Allentown Collegians 
the remaining three quarters of the 
game. The lone score of the day waf ; 
made in the first eight minutes of 
play when Borreli, star back of the 
enemy team, hurled a pass to Stoudt 
who caught it on the five yard line 
and paced for a touchdown. Two 
line plunges by Borelli and one by 
Greenberger brought the ball within 
a few yards of the goal when they 
were penalized 15 yards for holding 
the ball returning to the 40 yard line. 
It was here that Borelli issued the 
pa-s which was successfully com- 
pleted for a touchdown. 

Lebanon Valley, without Piersol 
and Fox in the line, due to their in- 
juries in the Temple game and daily 
scrimmage, was pushed back repeat- 
edly at first by Muhlenberg's heavy

Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. Will Spon- 
sor the Affair as Part of 
This Year's Program 

Opening Sestion in Color and 
New Method of Scenic Sec- 
tion to Feature 

The "1928 Quittapahilla" is taking- 
form. The 1 staff, getting off to an 

early start, has completed prelim- 
inary plans and is getting down to 
leal work. The class of '28 is back- 
ing the staff faithfully, and all in- 
dications point to a bigger and better 

The photo work is being done by 
Blazier and Miller, of Lebanon, while 
Hammersmith-Kortmeyer of Milwau- 
kee, have contracted for the engrav 
ing, printing and binding. A spe- 
cial cover design, in keeping with the 
remainder of the book has been pre- 
pared by the David J. Malloy Com- 
*>any, f Chicago, the foremost Mak- 
ers of College annual covers in 

" The theme "When Knighthood Was 
si Flower" will be carried out in thi? 
y ear's "Quittie." The six page open- 
ing section and the* division pages 
appear in three colors. These 
a nd other phases of the art work 
^rry out the theme with consum- 
mate care. Another feature 1 of the 
book will be a new method of hand- 
ing the scenic section, which is un- 
■•ttally attractive this year. 

To give more details of the plans 
*°r the' book would destroy the effect 
^hen it appears on the campus in 
J^ay, but these few should predict 
ltl e quality it will posses. The staff 
Priestly hopes for the support and 

^operation of every individual and 
^"ganization on the campus. 

At the regular weekly meetings of 
the Y. M. C, A. and Y. W. C. A. cab- 
inets in their respective' meeting 
rooms it was decided that both or- 
ganizations' would conduct a joint 
Hallowe'en party and Masquerade in 
the Alumni Gymnasium, on Friday 
October 29th, at 8:00 P. M. 

Up until the present time the Philo- 
kosmian literary Society had been 
conducting a Hallowe'en party on that 
night of each year, but this year it 
has been agreed/ that the Y. M. C. A. 
and Y. W. C. A. shall sponsor the af- 
fair which shall hereafter be a part 
of their year's program. No literary 
sessions will be conducted that 
night so as to make it possible for 
all students to attend. It is the plans 
of the Christian Associations to make 
the party an elaborate and entertain- 
ing affair. 

The program committees of both 
organizations have convened and 
have arranged a delightful program 
which has not as yet been made pub- 
lic. In all probability there will be a 
masked parade, during which judges 
will award prizes to the most com- 
ically dressed persons, and to imper- 
sonators who are able to make them- 
selves represent some well known 
characters. Then again there will 
be spooks, witches, black cats, dwarfs 
pumpkins, corn fodder and ap- 
ples which play an important role 
m all Hallowe'en parties. Perhaps 
the witches m&ft not play pranks as 
they sometimes do, such as placing 
wagons on the steps of the girl's dor. 
mitories, but instead they might tell 
fortunes. No one can tell just what 
is going to happen for they are very 
queer creatures. 

Then there will be games which 
will provoke much mirth and laugh- 
ter. The thrill that comes once in a 
lifetime will come when we find out 
who the person dressed as a witch, or 
the one dressed like Lucifer, or the 
one dressed like Santa Claus really 
turns out to be. 

Of course the 1 program will not 
lack the necessary pumpkin pie, etc; 
which will put the finishing touches 
to any Hallowe'en party. There will 
be plenty of eats as well as fun. It 
is expected that many members of 
the faculty will be present to enjoy 
the festivities and that they will take 
part' in the program.

The Boston Chapter of the Lebanon

the home of Mr and Mrs. Wim. Eby 
Herr, in Boston, on Thursday even-

evening was spent after which it was 
decided to organize and elect officers 
of the Boston Alumni who are now 
located in and about Boston. Those 
elected were: President, Mr. Galen

"What freak of nature is that cross- 
ing the campus, clinging tightly to 
Mother Earth by the way of the 1 gra-

"Oh, that is some rule-breaking

ializing by the Men's Senate and 
ordered to wear his full dress regal- 

"It looks as if he and his uniform 
are part or the ballast which accom- 

aVel the first Corinthians in their 
journey across the deep." 

This conversation took place be- 
tween a stranger and an L. V. C. up- 
per classman, for indeed some of the 
other boisterious freshmen . wear 
freak's regalia as a result of their 
inability or voluntary action to abide 
by the rules and regulations of the 
Men's Senate. 

During the past several weeks we 
have 1 seen several rule breakers serve 
their terms of punishment, due to 
their lack of observant study of rules. 
The person under observation by the 
above persons was none other than 
the Honorable Wm. Barnhart, who 
being a "shiek among ladies", was 
rather negligent when talking to wo- 
men, not paying attention to the fact 
that someone saw him break this 
Honorable rule of the Men's Senate. 
With a dress such as worn by the Hu- 
la Hula girls, a dozen of tin cans 
around his neck, and a sign on his 
back, he is now in a state 1 of proba- 
tion for 6 days. 

But he is not serving sentence a- 
lone as an accompanist he has Mr. 
Myers who accomodates uppperclass- 
men by polishing their shoes on North 
Hall steps each noon and evening. 
He "shined" in his rule breaking 
games, so that the Senate decided to 
keep him shining. In addition to this 
penalty, we saw him and Mr. Vauglin

of the Men's Glee Club last year and

ing that position, and it is expected 
that he will develope an excellent Club 
this year. Plans for an interesting 
as well as entertaining program are 
now under way and the Club has al- 
ready begun practicing. 
The Club meets every Tuesday and 
, ednesday evening at 9:30 in the

These rehearsels will continue 
^roughout the winter until the Cluo filled all of its concerts. The Club 
is very much in demand and it will

Sophomores and Seniors Cele-

Tug! Tug! Tug! Pulling with all 
their might and main, the Sopho- 
mores bested 1 the Freshmen in two 
snappy pulls in the annual tug-of-war 
held on the banks of the Quittapahilla 
creek west of the town. It required 
a bit mor than ten minutes of actual 
pulling to complete the triumph of 
the Sophs, and the Frosh returned 
to the campus wet and bedraggled. 

Assembling on the banks of the 
stream which has flowed swiftly 
through many years, witnessing the 
fall of many plebian teams and oc- 
cassionally dampening the spirits of 
the second year teams, the Seniors 
and Sophs took complete possession 
of the .west bank, while the class 
rivals and their cousins assumed a 
threatening position on the opposite 
shore. Yells rent the air, sometimes 
for one and then for the other of the 
teams. It seemed immpossible for 
one to drown the other out. 

Choice of banks was determined by 
the! flip of a coin. With the president 
of the Men's Senate tossing the coin, 
Coaches Joe Bruno and Bruce Beh- 
ney watched anxiously as he slowly 
uncovered the silver piece and the 
Sophs were given the choice. For 
their first pull, they decided upon the 
west bank. In this, neither side had 
any advantage because sidesi were 
changed after the first pull.

The prospects of the coming inter-

better than any time in the history 
of Lebanon Valley College, conse- 
quently, a heavy schedule is to be ar- 
ranged. It is true that graduation 
took away several men who were 
members of last year's teams, yet 
we have left five men who debated 
last year against other colleges and 
about this, group as a nucleus coach- 
es Gingrich and Wallace expeot to de- 
velop successful debating teams. 
This group consists of Elmer Keiser, 
Alfred Hershey, LeRoy Fegley, Bruce 
Behney and Clarence Ulrich. The 
past season was one of only fair suc- 
cess, as only one man on both teams 
had had experience in intercollegiate 
debating. However with so many de- 
bators of last year returnig and the 
large number of candidates which is 
expected, the outlook is quite favor- 

At a recent meeting of represen- 
tatives from different colleges in the 
east, which was held at Harrisburg 
for the purpose of arranging condi- 
tions for this year's intercollegiate 
debates, the question "Resolved, that 
the United States should cancel the 
war debts owed to her European na- 
tions,"' wwas the question adopted 
for debate. This question is prob- 
ably the 1 best that could have been 
chosen, for it is in common dis- 
cussion every day in governmental 
circles. It also offers a large field 
for preparation and investigations.

Co-operate With the Senate 

This year you will find the Men's Senate a wide-awake organ- 
ization, which is performing its duties in an excellent way. it 
has shown a spirit that both the old and new students should rec- 
ognize as worthy of merit. But the Senate alone cannot enforce 
the rules. A spirit of co-operation on the part of the three upper 
classes in reporting violations to this organization is a necessary 
part of the enforcement problem, and if the Senate receives this 
co-operation, they will show that they are ready to bring about 
justice. They have acted speedily without fear of the criticism 
that may be made, of them by the Freshmen. 

The Freshmen know what the rules call for, and they also 
know what to expect if the rules are violated. These rules have 
not been imposed nor has the Senate enforced them simply for 
the sake of showing the Freshmen the "power" and "authority" 
of the upper classmen. They have been adopted to train the new 
men in some of the traditions of the College and to enable them 
to form good habits. In enforcing the class rules the Senate has 
shown itself worthy of the support of all right thinking students. 


Read the Newspapers 

Have you read the newspaper today? If you haven't read 
it today; how often did you read it last week? Be frank with 
yourself ; you don't need to tell your neighbor. Probably some of 
you have kept up with the latest news of Barney Google and 
Spark Plug. Some may have even read Dumb Dora. Beware! 
Some people grow to be like those with whom they associate, even 
though it is only carried on through reading. Those with slightly 
higher ambitions read Tunney's every move or watch Red Grange 
as he plays. But is that the value a newspaper has? To most 
of you it is. Once in a while a member of our good faculty will 
ask his class to read and study stocks and bonds. But is business 
the only thing in life? We are wondering what a newpaper really 
should give to us. 

A newspaper should give to us every kind of news, not merely 
the unnecessary gossip and home news, but it should give to us a 
world-wide vision of what is happening in the countries as a 
whole. It should give to us a clear picture of all the progress and 
possibilities in the country. We should know something of the 
business world, of the political world, of the inventive world, of 
art, literature, of new discoveries— in short, a little of everything. 
There is no better place to find all this information than in a 
newspaper. You cannot be a good American citizen unless you 
make a habit of reading the newspaper and thinking it over. 

In classes, we study the work of centuries, but that is merely 
a background for our actual participation in life. And of what 
good is a knowledge of the past unless we can interpret it in 
terms of today ? Dewey tells us that education is life, and that an 
individual goes to school today in order to live today — not tomor- 
row. We are living as much today as we will be when out in life, 
and we can't afford to merely exist now. On one of our new 
high school buildings are inscribed these mottos : "Learn to live" 
and "Live to learn". Are they not worthy ones? The motto 
"Learn to live" was inscribed! first, indicating the first conception 
of education ; while the other motto, "Live to learn", indicates to 
us the trend of ideals today. We as college students are living 
today, not merely learning to live as we seem to think. Just as 
we are interested in world news today, so will we be when out in 
life. What would our world be if we had no interested people? 
It is time for you to become interested. Read the' newspaper and 
keep up with the times. Come out of your Roman and Grecian 
life of your studies and live today.

Hazelton who derived his famous vo- 
cal capacity in his lonesome jaunts 

in Persia. He absent-mindedly forgot 
the name of the college he was at- 
tending and as a result the Senate

the word that is important here ? 
It is the word persistent. All of 
us probably wish there wasn't 
such a word in the language or 
at least we despair of its prac- 
tice, when in a hurry to class, we 
are stopped again and again with

his persistency. He is torment- 
ed until under provocation his 
vocabulary increases at an 
alarming rate and embraces

Why do students fail? By 
that is meant not only Academic 
failure, but lack of social adjust- 
ment; failure to establish and 
then live by the standards what 
both College and society in gen- 
eral recognize as the best guide 
to a right living. Show me such 
an unfortunate and I will show 
you a person who is not persist- 
ent. Here is a student with sev- 
eral "flunks" as he is a student 
who says, "What's the use?" 
There is another who can't ad- 
just herself to college ways and 
college girls — she is the girl who 
says, "I don't understand their 
ways and I can't learn them 
either." "There's at least one of 
these types on each campus," ac- 
cording to common parlance. We 
hope this is not true at L. V., but 
in order to be immune from 
these failures, let us be persist- 
ent. It pays. 


"True or False ?" Heads-True, 
Tails-False." "Ten of these are 
supposed to be true, oh I have 
twelve of them marked T, which 
shall I change?" "Oh, my, if 
only no one has them all right, 
that sure will pull down my 
grade with six wrong!" "Oh, 
well that kind of a test is only 
a game of chance anyhow." All 
of us recognize these statements, 
don't we ? Perhaps we have said 
them ourselves. But is it a game 
of chance ? Doesn't it challenge 
some real thinking to discern 
false from true ? Aren't we ever 
called upon to differentiate these 
two conditions outside of Edu- 
cation Class? Luck, Chance, 
what ever we call it, doesn't' get 
us very far. He who said, "Gen- 
uis is 99 per cent hard work/' 
certainly knew what he was 
talking about, probably that ac- 
counts for the scarcity of this 
species. True or False? This 
question faces us in every situ- 
ation, and we need more than a 
tossed-up-coin to decide the mat- 
ter, we must depend upon a dis- 
cernment born of industry and 
pluck. Not Luck, but Pluck !

The Philokosmian Literary Society 
entertained the Clionian Literary 
Society in Philo Hall on Friday even- 
ing, October 15th. The hall was com. 
pletely filled with members of the two 
societies and friends. The program 

was rather unique, for it consisted 
of impersonations of different "funny 
paper" characters. These imperson- 
ations required clever acting on the 
part of the students, and the approval 
shown 'by the audience indicated that 
this was accomplished. 

The different groups of funny paper 
characters represented were Toots 
and Casper, Bringing Up Father, Pa's 

Son-in-law, Harold Teen, The Guimps, 
Dumb Dora, Skeesix, Katzzenjammer 
Kids and The Man in the Brown 
Derby. This was the first time any 
program of this nature was attempt- 
ed and without doubt it was entire- 
ly successful. After the program 
refreshments were servetd and a so- 
cial hour was enjoyed. The student 
body is looking forward to other 
joint sessions of these two societies 
during the remainder of the year. 

The program of Friday evening, 
October 22nd, was given entirely by 

new members of the society. The in- 
terest shown by the audience proved 

that splendid ability has been added 
to the society. The program was as

iBoosters for both side's watched 
anxiously as John Walter, acting 
in his official capacity as President 
of the Men's Senate, slowly rais- 
ed the starting gun, giving the 
com'mand to get ready As 
the shot was fired, both 
sides dropped, but in that brief in- 
stant the Sophs acquired their first 
advantage, They got the drop on the 
iFrosh land almost immediately the 
first year men came slowly but sure- 
ly toward the swollen waters of the 
Quittie. Candano struck the water 
first and the rest followed in quick 
order. Less than three minutes elaps. . 
ed between the' starting and finish- 
ing gun and the Sophs' took the other 
side of the creek witn the advantage 
of having won the first pull. 

In the second pull, both teams 
seemed to drop at once and neither 

scored an advantage. The Frosh 
seemed 1 determined to win, and 
started the' Sophs on the jour- 
ney toward the icy water. 
But the Sophs took a brace 
and held. For a minute or so, it was 
give and take and then the Frosh 
again began to slide toward the 

water. Even after they had been forc- 
ed into the water, they showed garne- 
ness and struggled to regain what 
they had lost. It was a vain struggle 
and in exactly 8 minutes and 30 sec- 
onds after the gun started the pull, 
it was ended and the class of 1929 
was victorious in the tug-of-war for 
the first time. 

Both teams remained intact for the 
two pulls. The pulling teams lined 
up as follows: 

Sophomores : Mentzer, Troutman, 
Lutz, Emenheiser, Kiehner, IHovis, 
Allen, Derrickson, Miller and Eberly. 

Freshmen: Hoffman, Wampler, 
Shroyer, IHazelton, Kline, Orth, Haf- 
er, Hertzler, Candano and Vaudenall. 

The substitutes were: Sophs — ■ 
Calabrese, Aungst, Bixler, and 
Disney; Frosh — Allwein, Barnhart 
Rhoades and Meyers. 

^Following the usual custom, the 
Seniors invited the victorious Sophs 
to a banquet in celebration. This 
event was held at Chefs, just east 
of town, and both classes turned out 
'n full force for the event. Chicken 
and waffles formed the most import- 
ant part of the evening's program. 
Following the "feed," Prof Gingrich, 
the toastmaster, took charge and a 
varied program was given. It opened 
with several popular songs and then 
Miss Jane Fearnow spoke a word of 
welcome. A duet by the Overly sis- 
ters was followed by several addres- 
ses. Gordon Star, the president of 
the Senior class responded to the 
welcome of Miss Fearnow, and others 
who spoke were: Joe Bruno, coach of 
the team; Lanston Mentzer, captain; 
and John F. Walter, president of the' 
Men's Senate. The' Sophomore quar- 
tette gave several selections. The 
closing numlber was the Alma Mater. 

The Juniors and Freshmen enjoyed 
an after-tug consolation hike to 
Lover's Leap, south of town. 

Much credit must be given to the 
coaches of the two teams, Joe Bruno 

and Bruce Behney. Both men sac- 
rificed of their time in an attempt 
to build up a winning combination, 
and while both could not win, each 

deserves his share of praise. We 
look forward now to next year wheti 
we can again withess the tug! tug!

line, but regained their firm status 
and were never threatened again. 
From this time Lebanon Valley re- 
peatedly threatened the Muhlenberg 

team for touchdowns, but due to the 
absent stars were unsuccessful in ac- 
quiring a touchdown. In the second 
period it looked disastrous to the 
Allentown eleven when a forward 
pa)ss to Metoxin whicji without a 
doubt would have scored, was averted 
when a Muhlenberg back tackled the' 

Indian from the rear and caused him 
to miss it. It was a violation of the 

jame but was unseen by the officials. 
In the second quarter Gerbert and 

Nitrauer, star backfield were, removed 
from the fray as a result of very 
serious injuries. This weakened the 

local team to a very great extent, 
and had they been present when the 
CMhihleinberg goal was threatened it 

is probable that they would have 
pushed the pigskin across. 
Hendricks substituting for Gelbert, 

played a remarkable game, and show- 
ed excellent form in end runs, which 
netted ai few first downs for Lebanon 

On several occasions a field goal 
would have been possible had Piersol 
been present with his educated 
punting toe. The line held remark- 
ably well, with Wheeler as a rock of 
Gibraltor at the tackle position, 

Cunjack, receiving a pass in the third 
quarter on the ten yard line was not 
fleet footed enough to divert the 
tackle of an offensive back, thereby 
fa'ling to score. 

Greenberger and Borrelli played ex- 
cellently for Muhlenberg, the former 

especially being a sure reliance for a 
few yards through the line. 

With all due respect to the Muhlen- 
berg team , anyone who saw the game 
will admit that had the injured stars 
of the local team been in the fray 
throughout the game, a different score 
in favor of Lebanon Valley would 
have resulted. This fact cannot be 
denied, for the Lebanon Valley eleven 
superiorly outplayed the Muhlenberg 

team in the three last quarters of the

What could be more entertaining 
than the Delphian-Kalo Stock Com- 
pany? Such was the opportunity af- 
forded the largest number of patrons 
who assembled in Engle Hall last 
Friday evening to witness the first 
joint session of the year between the 
Delphian girls and the Kalo boys. 
The entire program was dramatic in 
nature, consisting of sketches, thea- 
trical news, soloss, and "Charleston- 
ing." Every feature was peppy 
enough to hold the deep interest of 
the large audience. "Company News'" 
or "Who's Who in Delphian Kalo 
Stock Company was related by 
by Floss'e Dundore. Following 
this feature Mary Overly coming 
direct from New York added to the 
repute of the company with her solo 
work. Then on the stage 1 come "Fan" 
Long, "Eddie" Gorske, Janet Miller, 
and "Midget" Lane — the peppy quar- 
tette of Charlestoners who " showed 
their stuff in their black and! white 
costumes to the enjoyment of all. 
Lawrence Derickson presented in a 
very unique manner "T'ne Passing 
Show," a resume 1 of the "big hits" 
icKramatiic features of the prolgram, 
all were delightfully pleased with the 
latest sketches of the Company, viz., 
"This Way and That Way, reaturing 
"Joe" Bruno, Janet Miller, "Fan" Long, 
and "Jitney" Brubaker. The second 
sketch — Omelette, Prince of Egg- 
mark — was presented by the follow- 
ing stars: John Walter, "Kay"

twenty seven girls. The house, which 
was a large double one, has been en- 
larged, remodeled, and redecorated 

for their comfort and convenience. It 
is a fine addition as a third girls' dor. i 

Enrollment shows a marked in- 
crease. Last year tne net enroll- 
ment for all departments was 598; 
the gross enrollment, tJ72. They were 

Ji^tributed as follows, College Dept. 
323, Conservatory of Music, 107, Sum- 
mer School, 99, Extension Dept. 43. 

The total number for the year will 
be about 370 in the College Dept.; 
Summer School, 187, Conservatory of 
Music, 120, Extension Dept. 175. 

The Summer School this year was 

held at two places: Annville and Har- 
lisburg. The enrollment totaled 187 
students, 96 of whom were here in 
Annville, 81 in Harrisburg. 

At the commencement in June the 
largest class was graduated that ever 

went out from L. V.; a total of 77. 
Of that number, 72 received the bac- 
calaureate degree, 3 the master's de 
gree and 2 graduates from the Con- 
servatory of Music. 

The recent campaign for endow- 
ment is proving a great help to the 
college. The total amount invested 
in endowment is above $550,000 with 

enough pledged to make the total a- 
mount reach $950,000. The college is 

entirely free of debt. The General

Address the Business Manager, La Vie Collegienne 



New York, (By New Student 
Service) — Student assent has been 
given to the proposal to do away 
with lectures at Rollins College, 
Florida. The • innovation was pro- 
posed by President Hamilton Holt, 
former editor of The Independent. 

Instead of coming to classes for 
lectures the students will attend to 
study. The usual 60 minute period 
will be lengthened to two hours. 
The students will study in classes 
under the guidance of the professor 
and in constant consultation with 
him "the purpose being to place 
academic life on a more practical 
basis by placing class attendance on 
a par with the hours and duties of a 
business office." 

A majority of the students were 
favorably impressed with the idea; 
some objections, however, were raised. 
The principle doubts were as follows: 
Professors who have not adapted 
themselves to the changed condition 
and make use of the two-hour period 
to deliver an extended lecture, out- 
side work continuing as before; the 
problem of the working student and 
that the athlete who suffers from 
overstuffed schedules; the necessarily 
doubled number of conflicts, with their 
attendant inconveniences, as well as 
the uncomfortable and impractical 
conditions of some recitation rooms. 
A more serious point raised was the 
question whether or not so radical a 
change in college procedure would 
affect the standing of Rollin in ac- 
ademic circles." 

Assurance was given by the faculty 
that these difficulties would be 
smoothed out as the plan operates.

Blue and White Gridders Throw Off 
Jinx in Loose Game With Mt St. Mary's 

Mylinmen Score Three Touchdowns in First Quarter, But Are 
Held Scoreless for the Remaining Three Periods — 
Final Score 20-13 


1 Lebanon Valley played its first 
home game of the season and defeated 
the Mt. St. Mary's eleven by the score 
of 20-13, on Bethlehem Steel Field, 
Lebanon. Both teams were fairly ev- 
enly matched and showed good fight. 
Many fumbles, however, were made 
which added to the interesting strug- 
gle. The game was outstanding for 
the long runs made. Zappia, a new 
man on the team, grasped a forward 
in mid-air and run 75 yards for a 
touchdown, very skillfully dodging all 
opposing tacklers. Hendricks, another 
Freshman, run back a punt for -60 
yards, and in doing so exhibited some 
tactful maneuvers in escaping the op- 
posing team. On a five yard crash 
through right tackle, Singley plunged 
his way for the first touchdown of the 
game. Lebanon Valley scored all 
their points in the first quarter; 
whereupon Mt. St. Mary's played a 
very good defense game up to the end 
of the game.

ered by the opposing team, netted

Sidney Landon 
Will Entertain 
On Star Course 

Nocturnal Visit 
Features Local 
Hallowe'en Eve 

Campus Presents Varied Scene 
After Annual Cele- 

Entertainer to Give Character 
Studies of Great Lit- 
erary Men 

The second number on the Star 
Course will be presented on November 
15, in Engle Hall. Sidney Landon will 
be the entertainer, and he will give 
character studies and impersonations 
of great literary men. 

By reviewing the greatest literary 
men of a century Sidney Landon has 
contributed new dignity to the art of 
impersonation. With wigs, grease, 
paints, and a vivid imagination, he 
gives faithful reproductions of Mark 
Twain, Jack Billings, Victor Hugo, 
Bill Nye, Longfellow, Thackery, Kip- 
ling, Tennyson, Holmes and numerous 
others. He completely loses his own 
identity, assumes a new role and 
quotes from the works of the genius 

One of Mr. Landon's most popular 
Presentations is of Mark Twain mak- 
ing his historic birthday speech. Ed- 
gar Allen Poe is pictured in his story 
°f "Annabel Lee." A humorous selec- 
tion by F. Hopkinson Smith, a Rud- 
Vard Kipling poem, a humorous read- 
tog from James Witcomb Riley, Bill 
Nye's "American Boy" and a group of 
Longfellow's poems are favorites in 
'tis repertoire. 

Many of the later-day writers Mr. 
^andon knew personally. Other writ- 
es in both England and America, he 
Earned to know through visits to their 
former homes and libraries and 
through! interviews with relatives and 
do&e friends. 

Sidney Landon's "Great Literary 
^n" i s a masterpiece in popular and 
Un ique intellectual diversion. 

Thursday, October 28, Hallowe'en 
night on the campus, surpassed all ex- 
pectations. Following an annual cus- 
tom, "the boys" engaged in a little 
"extra-curricular" activity, with the 
result that our campus, together with 
most of its buildings, presented varied 
signs of handiwork of unknown origin. 

The Chapel seemed to be the recip- 
ient of the most attention, for on it 
was centered an artistry rarely 
equalled. Chief among the features 
in its decoration were a local "Old 
Gray Mare," with several fowls for 
company; innumerable corn shocks, 
together with other beauties of na- 
ture; and a rare collection of chairs, 
tables, and stage properties, all suit- 
ably marked. 

Our local talent found time too, to 
visit the Administration Building. In- 
deed, rarely during the academic year, 
is so much attention paid to the de- 
tails of its appearance. Most of its 
loose properties found new resting 
places for the night, while on Fri- 
day morning there appeared an un- 
heard of number of new door-knobs on 
class-room doors. Each of the dormi- 
tor'es received due recognition, the un- 
known callers being careful to slight 
no one. 

Besides the several wagons, care- 
fully selected, from an unlimiteed 
stock, the feature of the campus was 
the miniature, but realistic cemetery, 
which graced our green on Friday 
morning. Each of the markers had 
evidently been chosen with scrupulous 

Rumors that Mike Smith, the camp- 
us Sleuth, has been called out on the 
case are reported to be false.

Coral Gables 
Founder Visits 
Lebanon Valley 

Mrs. Althea Fink Merrick, '83, 
Recal s Memories of 
College Days 

Mrs. Althea Fink Merrick, '83, and 
several of the members of her family, 
visited here the latter part of October. 
The visitors, who were touring from 
Miami, Florida, to New York City, 
stopped to call at the Gossard home. 

Brief as it was, it must have been 
a reminiscent experience for Mrs. 
Merrick. It was her first return to 
the Alma Mater after an absence of 
nearly half a Century. She graduated 
in 1883, as Miss Althea C. Fink, and 
a classmate of Mr. Solomon G. Mer- 
rick. After commencement, he en- 
rolled in the Yale Divinity School. 
Miss Fink being retained as a member 
of the college .faculty at Lebanon 
alley. A year later, 1884, they were 
married in the house on Sheridan 
avenue, opposite Engle Conservatory, 
by the college president, Dr. D. E. De- 
Long. Twenty-eight years later 
(1912), Mr. Merrick died in Florida, 
where he dreamed of, and planned for, 
a great development. 

After his death, his son, George 

Edgar Merrick, established what is 
now called Coral Gables, a great pro- 
motion scheme embracing 10,000 acres 
of land in the vicinity of Miami. It 
is, without question, unique in its 
character and the most marvelous of 
its kind in America. Mr. George Mer- 
rick presented 160 acres of the estate 
as a site for the founding of Miami 
University and a large sum of money 
for the erection of an Administration 
Building, which is to be named in 
memory of his father, Solomon Graes- 
ley Merrick. The University opened 
this Fall with an enrollment of nearly 
1000 students. 

And so it is possible to appreciate, 
in part, at least, their sentiments as 
they visited the old college, and with 
what pleasure Mrs. Merrick and her 
children gazed upon the institution, 
where both father and mother studied, 
graduated and were married more 
than forty years ago. 

DeMoss Family 
Give Y. W.-Y.M. 

World Famous Troupe Present 
Varied Program of Un- 
usual Merit 

The DeMoss family, under the aus- 
pices of the college Y. W. and Y. M. 
C. A., gave a varied and entertaining 
program in Engle Hall on Tuesday, 
November 2, at eight o'clock. 

The ensemble played the Second 
Hungarian Rhapsody, its opening 
number, with all the fevor peculiar to 
Lizst compositions. In contrast to a 
rythmical Spanish March by the com- 
pany. Albert DeMoss, the violinist 
of the family, held his audience spell- 
bound with the soft mellow strains of 
Shubert's Ave Marie. Homer DeMoss 
displayed his musical artistry when he 
very ably interpreted the many moods 
of the wind in a flute solo. Miss 
Florence Smith, acting in the capacity 
of pianist of the company, played a 
Lizst Rhapsody; then as a reader, she 
gave Edgar Guest's poem, "A Heap 
O' Living," and also a short piano- 
logne, "Go Ask Your Ma." 

Too much credit can not be given 
Miss Smith, who played during prac- 
tically the entire program. The suc- 
cess of any musical company, such as 
this, depends to a great extent on the 
accompanist. Miss Smith, a graduate 
of the American Conservatory, per- 
formed brilliantly at the piano, show- 
ing splendid technic. Not only class- 
ical numbers were rendered, but also 
many religious selections and hymns. 
An arrangement of "The Holy City" 
for the sleigh bells, proved a very 
pleasing number. The bells played by 
George DeMoss and his wife pealed 
forth many soul-stirring hymns. 

Of the secular music, the banjo 
club, picking away southern melodies, 
scored a great applause. However, 
the climax of the evening was a feat 
which perhaps no other musician in 
America can perform, George DeMoss 
played two guitars at the same time

The Hallowe'en party given under 
the auspices of the Y. W. C. A. and

mer years, a real success. Friday 
evening, at eight o'clock, the freak 
inhabitants of the campus entered the 
gymnasium and passed in grand re- 
view before the judges. Many unex- 
pected arrivals added to the amaze- 
ment and merriment of the crowd. 
There was much speculation as to 
identities only proven after the par- 
ade, when the unmasking took place. 
A prize was awarded to Mary Hartz, 
who was very cleverly disquised as a

34-7. That Lebanon Valley wage: 1 , a 
bitter fight can be seen by the 1

A Wise Allegory 

The following translation is taken from one of Lesage's 
novels: Before hearing the account of my life, listen, friend 
reader, to a story I am about to tell you. 

Two students were walking together from Penafiel to Sala- 
man. Feeling rather warn? and tired, they stopped at a fountain 
along the way. After refreshing themselves, they happend to 
.see near them a stone, flush with the ground, on which was writ- 
ten some inscription. The words were not legible, for they had 
bn almost r ET Aeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ETfM,BHETAOINETAOINNU 
been almost erased by time and by the steps of travelers, who 
drank at that fountain. The two students washed the stone with 
water and found these words: "Here is enclosed the soul of the 
Master, Pierre Garcias." The youngest student, who was tem- 
peramental and thoughtless, had scarcely read the inscription 
when he burst out laughing and said: "Nothing could be more 
foolish; I would like to know what eccentric fellow has written 
such a ridiculous epitaph." While saying these words, he got 
up and walked away, but his companion said to himself: "There 
is beneath this stone some mystery; and I want to stay here to 
clear this up." He began digging around the stone with his knife 
and finally was able to raise the stone. He found under it a 
leather purse containing one hundred ducats and a note on which 
was written these words: "Be my inheritor, you who have had 
enough sense to discover the meaning of this inscription and 
make better use of my money than I have." The student, de- 
lighted with his discovery, replaced the stone as it was before, 
and went on his way rejoicing to Salamaque with the soul of an 
eccentric fellow. 

Whoever you are, friend reader, you will resemble either the 
one or the other student. If you read my adventurs without 
understanding the moral instructions that they carry, you will 
kill all the fruit of this- work, but if you read it carefully you will 
find in it usefulness mingled with entertainment. Such was Le- 
sage's introduction to his novel, Gil Glas. 

If every student would heed this allegory and follow its mor- 
al, certainly all reading would mean so much more. We dare say 
about eighty-five per cent, of the students read as the young and 
thoughtless student reacted to the inscription. We merely read 
the book as he read the inscription ; we fail to raise the stone and 
search beneath. We are prone to read the book for the story and 
fail to get the deeper and worthwhile meaning. In every good 
book we too can find one hundred ducats by searching for the 
deeper meaning which the author meant to be our heritage. Let 
us when reading a book head this little allegory. 

Think It Over, F olks! 

Are we going to have a college band? Yes, very much so. 
Doesn't it make- you feel good to know that Lebanon Valley is 
going to have that which is due her? But before becoming too 
much enthused with the fact, we must consider another thing, 
viz, that we must support it or at least make some effort to make 
it a success as well as a reality. The time is near at hand when 
we are going to be asked to support it. Are you going to say 
"No," or will you do your bit as a true Lebanon Valley student 
should? We're all set. Everybody help! 

The World Tomorrow offers a prize for the best essay on the 
subject, "What Youth is Thinking." I wonder how many of us 
ever do sit down and really think. Do we have any ideas on sub- 
jects that vitally concern the nation or do we dismiss them from 
our minds as dull and boresome? Did you ever stop to think that 
some day you will be held responsible if America should go on the 
rocks ?

the festivity of Hallowe'en, kept the 
spirits busy. Mary McLanachan read 
a ghost story of undeniably weird 
quality. Nelda Spatz sang very 
sweetly, as usual. Dr. Wallace de- 
lighted the audience with his stories, 
both entertaining and clever. 

The remaining part of the evening 
was spent in playing games and in 
enjoying the delicious refreshments 
which the spirits connived to smuggle 
in. Autumn yielded pumpkins for pie, 
apples to eat and cider to drink. 

This and That

Applesauce. How did it origin- 
ate? ! In ancient times some one 
accidentally crushed a fine, juicy, 
luscious apple and under provoca- 
tion at what seemed a loss, said 
"Applesauce" and then his expres- 
sion was adopted for what proved 
to 'be a wholesome and edible dish. 

What is it:*, Webster defines; 
sauce as "Any mixture used as a 
relish." This definition served its 
purpose in describing the old-time 
conception of this term inadequate 
but since it has gained a wider use 
Websters' help is inadequate unless 
it is also rearranged to read: "Used 
with a relish after any mixture." 

What are its uses ? Most people 
would answer — "As a food or re- 
lish." But can you not see an un- 
derlying reason for its continu- 
ance? Every country, every fam- 
ily has its traditions in the prepara- 
tion certain foods. 

Italy .is famous for the macaroni; 
China considers iice a food of the 
first magnitude; Lebanon County's 
fame depends in part on her Bolog- 
na; and we're coming home for 
an example — Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege holds as one of her oldest und 
most unchanged traditions, the pres- 
ence of Applesauce at meals every- 
day It is a traditions, that 
is a part of us — fiesh of 
our fiesh, bone of our bone. 
We would gladly abandom the 
worn out custom but we cannot, 
however it is possible to make use 
of the broader application and that 
it is growing in popularity. Two 
students while partaking of this 
"nourishing" relish at a meal, were 
speaking on the subject when we 
presented this morsel of gossip. 
"Did you hear the Profs, have de- 
cided not to have Mid-Semester 
exams? The second student paus- 
ed to remark "Applesauce" and 
those around him understood the 
meaning of his comment. 

The writer suggests that this 
term may be used with much advan- 
tage at some further date. If you 
fine yourself "a stranger in a 
strange land" and see ,a person 
bearing the earmarks of familarity 
greet him by saving "Applesauce" 
and if that person was claimed stu- 
dentship at L. V. C, this password 
will imediately create the bond of 
understanding that you desire. It 
does have something creditable to 
its name doesn't it? Applesauce!

House of Good Food 

Interesting Talk 
By Dr. H. Gruman 

"Efficiency and Eyesight" the 
Subject of Instructive 

In the long ago, there was no such 
thing as eyestrain. Men lived in cav- 
es, hunted the open country in quest 
of food and almost always used their 
eyes for distant objects only. But with 
the advent of civilization, things have 
taken a new turn. With the inven- 
tion of printing, have come books, per- 
iodicals, magazines; all of which re- 
quire the use of the eyes. The devel- 
opment of moving pictures and most 
of all the invention and development 
of machinery, such as we use in our 
daily work, has caused an increased 
use of the eyes for near work. Going 
back only two hundred years, what 
proportion of the people in our coun- 
try were able to read and of those who 
could do so, how many spent more 
than a few hours each day in the close 
application of their eyes to such use. 
Add to this small number the very 
few engaged in fine industrial occupa- 
tions and you have the sum total of 
those whose eyes were in any danger 
of being strained. Compare this with 
conditions of today and you have the 
cause of eyestrain. In other words, 
eyestrain is a product of modern life. 

This fact was brought out with un- 
usual emphasis during the world war 
when it was found that in the draft 
of 1917 there were more than three 
times as many men rejected because 
of defective vision than were rejected 
for any other physical cause. Recently 
the President of one of our leading 
Mesh Bag concerns convened his man- 
agers to discuss a falling off in pro- 
duction. Each had his say. Then the 
President got on his feet. "You fel- 
lows are all right", he said,"your work 
is all right but there is waste some- 
where. We have tried everything ex- 
cept jacking up the man power and I 
beileva the men's eyes are at the bot- 
tom of the trouble. Gentlemen, we are 
going to have every pair of eyes in' 
this organization examined and glass- 
es fitted where necessary." And in 
the survey that resulted, here are the 
startling facts that were revealed. 

It was found that 70% of the em- 
ployees had defective sight and that 
20% of the inspector s were unable 
to see sufficiently well to detect faults 
in the product they were paid to in- 
spect. The President was right. Eye- 
sight was the factor they had all ne- 
glected. In a short time, when the 
men who needed spectacles were e- 
quipped with them, production jump- 
ed decisively. Production jumped to 
an increase of 28% for the company, 
the Whiting and Davis Company, 
Mesh Bag Manufacturers of Plain- 
ville, Mass. 

In a recent survey of the eyes of 
some 260,000 employes of the Ford 
Motor Co., it was revealed that 48% 
had defective sight, while the U. S. 
Health Service in a recent Bulletin 
showed that of nearly 3,000 persons 
engaged in one branch of the garment 
industries in New York City, only 
slightly more than 25% of them have 
normal vision in both eyes. 

The Nation is not getting a square 
deal in commerce, industry, trade, 
Science, art or anything else when 
every fraction of seeing power is 
ft ot availed of to the fullest extent. 
*. said before that eyestrain is a pro- 
duct of modern life. Therefore let 
Us fight it with modern weapons. 

The sad fact however is that we so 
Seldom know when we have eyestrain, 
^ot all who have bad eyes suffer from 
the rodinary symptoms. This is just 
hke in the case of the colored man 
^ho fell down a three story building, 
^■t the hospital, it was found that 
^e^had sustained a fractured skull,- 

Philo has entered upon the second 
period in its year's program. On Fri- 
day evening, November 5, before the 
regular program, the officers elected 
for the second six weeks' term were 
installed. The members of the society 
were very well pleased to have the 
president's chair filled by Luke S. 
Mimura, for no other person in the 
society is more deserving of this 
honor than he. Although he entered 
the society in his freshman year, 
strange to our customs and habits, es- 
pecially in literary work, yet he ac- 
customed himself rapidly to his new 
environment. In the course of the 
past three years he has worked so 
diligently and hard for the cause of 
Philo, that he has received from it 
the highest honor which the society 
can confer upon any of its members. 
In his inaugural address, Mr. Mimura 
expressed the ideals for which he has 
worked, and for which the society has 
worked in years past. Although 
hampered by a slight difficulty in 
speaking English language, Mr. Mim- 
ura delivered his address in a very 
eloquent manner and it was received 
with forceful applause. We are look- 
ing for a very successful term, under 
his leadership. The other officers in- 
stalled were: 

Vice President Millard J. Miller 

Rec. Sec Charles Gelbert 

Cor. Sec Norman Wheeler 

Critic Clarence Ulrich 

Chaplain ...JSamuel Meyer 

Pianist Harold Rider 

Editor Milford Knisely 

Ch. Ex. Com Bruce Behney

The program for Friday evening, 
November 12 will be entirely in the 
nands of the Freshmen. This is only 
one of several Freshman programs to 
be given during the year. The pro- 
gram will consist of the following

a couple of broken ribs and a broken 
leg. Several weeks later, when he 
was already on his way to recovery, 
his employer came to see him and af- 
ter a while he asked, "Sam, now that 
you're almost well, tell me what did 
it feel like to get cracked up the way 
you did?" And the darkey looked up 
at his boss and said, "Boss, I shuah 
don't understan that there fallin' bus- 
iness. When ah cuts my finger with 
man razor,- wow! it shuah does hurt, 
but when ah come down that there 
building it just done didn't feel like 
nothin'. I just went to sleep." And 
that is just the way it is in the case 
of our eyes. When your eyes are 
silghtly defective, you suffer from 
headaches, blurred vision, styes, diz- 
ziness and a host of other symptoms 
but after awhile your eyes become so 
bad that just like in the case of Sam, 
"you just don't feel nothin'.' The 
Ophthalmic nerve has been literally 
knocked unconscious by the terrific 

People do not seem to realize the in- 
timate relationship between their eyes

There are some curious-minded per-

ery day and that this is the newest of 
the new? The proofs thereof consist 
in the following:

Monday evening, November 1, the 
members of the Readers Club wit- 
nessed the play, "Ghosts," by Hen- 
rik Isben, at the Academy of Music 
Lebanon. Mrs. Fiske, that actress of 
most extraordinary ability, played the 
important role. 

The Club plans an intensive study 
of drama for the coming season and 
this was an excellent beginning for 
the term program.

and other organs of their body;that 
whatever affects the one will affect 
the other. The functioning of any 
organ of the body is made possible 
Dnly by the expenditure of nerve force, 
which is the vital motive power of the 
body. The eyes when normal and free 
from defects use perhaps 15% of all 
this vital nerve -force but when the 
eyes are defective then it is another 
story. In striving to overcome the de- 
fect, in trying to see clearly, in spite 
of this handicap, the eyes will use up 
much more nerve force than they 
should. In extreme cases of eyestrain, 
we find the eyes using 50% of one 
half of the total nerve force of the 
body, thus robbing the other organs 
of their motive power. In their daily 
practice Optometrists often find cases 
of extreme eyestrain where the eyes 
are robbing the stomach, liver, heart 
or kidneys of their motive power so 
that these latter organs cannot func- 
tion properly. The remedy is to put 
the eyes in focus when ease takes the 
place of disease. The point is that 
many persons apparently see as well 
as anyone, but are using too much 
nerve energy in the process, thus 
causing a lowered efficiency of the en- 
tire body. So as a result,thousands of 
people in every community are at- 
tempting to do their daily work not 
only with inefficient eyes, but with in- 
efficient bodies made so by their 
nerve-strained eyes, a fact made 
sadder still since they do not even sus- 
pect the real condition of their eyes. 
They have only their eyes to see thru 
and since they seem to see things nor- 
mally, they blame their ailments on

men were given an opportunity to "do

their nerves, or their work or some- 
thing in general but never on their 
eyes. If people only realized how 
much unecessary misery suffering they 
could save themselves by a properly 
fitted pair of spectacles they would 
not delay one moment to have their 
eyes examined. 

The big men of our country have 
recognized these facts. How many of 
the big men of our country can you 
think of who do not wear glasses 
either constantly or for near work? 
It is a fact that 95 per cent of the 
successful men have availed them- 
selves of the help that glasses give 

Greater production per human unit 
is our economic need today, but it 
cannot be achieved unless the individ- 
ual is physically efficient. No physi- 
cal effect contributes more directly to 
fatigue and resulting inefficiency than 
faulty eyesight. No other defect 
causes a like waste of vitality, time 
and material. Weak eyes and high 
prices are definitely linked. Truly 
has it been said that your eyes are 
your breadwinners. The man or wo- 
man who tries to fight the battle of 
life with defective eyes is in the same 
position as the soldier trying to fight 
his battle with a broken sword.

Who are the Scrubs ? Literally 
speaking, they are the under-studies 
or sparring partners for the Varsity. 
That is, they are the ones who go to 
the atheletic field night after night 
and try to hold the first team in check 
as they tear up and down the field, 
bowling over opposition. If the Var- 
sity breaks through, the Scrub is a 
bum, and if he holds the Varsity in 
check, he is something very different 
to the members of the Varsity. 

A chain is as strong as its weak- 
est link and that applies to football. 
A varsity is only as good as its scrub 
team. If the scrubs refuse to fight, 
the varsity receives no opposition and 
then, when they buck up against op- 
position in a real game they are not 
ready to meet it. If the scrubs make 
the Varsity fight for every inch they 
get, then the Varsity will be able to 
meet the test when the time comes. 

So the next time you ask a chap 
where he plays and he answers, "On 
the scrubs," don't laugh! Give him 
a pat on the back or say, "Good work, 
ol' boy." When you see him sitting 
on the side lines, give him a cheer. 
He deserves it. Give him all the credit 
due him. The scrub is the stimulus 
that sends the Varsity to victory. 
School yell for the scrubs, gang. Let's 
go. C. R.

Mylinmen Make Unexpected Turn In 
Last Period and Beats Dickinson 

glue and White Gridders Outplayed the Carlisle Boys in 
Three Quarters by Collecting Sixteen First Downs 
To Their Eleven, in Hard Fought Game 




With but a minute and a half to 
lay Lebanon Valley, in a stirring 
last minute fight, took the count of 
ickinson 7-6. The unexpected hap- 
pened. With Lebanon Valley on the 
losing end of a 6-0 score and with the 
ball on Dickinson's 20 yard line, with 
only a minute and thirty seconds to 
play, it looked like a loss for Leba- 
on Valley. But many of the Leb- 
on Valley students had hope, for 
;he boys were showing excellent fight, 
'he backfield men converse — a new 
play is adopted — and then, the ball 
nt hurrying down the field. An 
rial attack was made — 'such as is 
idem seen in college football. Gel- 
rt passed to Fox who recovered it 
in mid-air for a gain of 25 yards. An- 
other forward was attempted but 
failed in its purpose. This did not

With Audience 

Impersonator Gives Speaking 
Likeness of Famous 
Literary Men 






Great sorrow and regret were ex- 
pressed on the part of the students of 
Lebanon Valley this week when they 
Were informed of the death of Walter 
Krause, a graduate of last year. His 
Untimely death was a tremendous 
s Wk to all, especially those who were 
closely associated with him. He had 
taen failing in health for the past 
year, and was confined in a hospital 
*or several months. 
While at Lebanon Valley, he was 
Very popular young man, and was 
eed well liked by all. His person- 
'ity and character were of the high- 
es t type. As a student he was very 
^uch interested in all activities, tak- 
ing great delight in performing his 
in whatever phase of work he. 
entered. With the exception of his 
t year, he was a loyal contender in 
le arly all athletic activities. As a 
three-letter man he was an enthusi- 
astic member of the L Club, to which 
0l ^y men who have earned an "L" 
^ athletic ability may belong. Other 
ar npus activities in which he was in- 
vested also made him a lovable com- 
panion among those with whom he 
^m e i n con tact. His death brings the 
f s of one who was thoroughly ad- 
"^ed and loved by all. 

students and faculty of Lebanon 
alley College extend the deenest 
eeli nff . of sympathy to his family and 
° s e closclv related to him. 

Sidney Landon, impersonator of 
famous literary men, was the attrac- 
tion at the second number of the Star 
Course on Monday evening, Novem- 
ber 15, in Engle Hall. Although im- 
pending examinations kept many stu- 
dents from enjoying this splendid en- 
tertainment, yet a fair audience greet- 
ed him. Not one person who attended 
the number was disappointed, for Mr. 
Landon proved to be a most interest- 
ing entertainer, and gave a very in- 
structive and comprehensive sketch of 
different 1 terary characters. 

Mr. Landon first gave a short sketch 
of the life of the individual he was 
about to impersonate. Then, by 
means of wige, grease and paint, he 
presented a most accurate appearance 
of the character. He then gave one 
of his works. With several of these 
literary characters he had been per- 
sonally acquainted, while others of an 
earlier date he knew from the study 
of their works and from acquaintance 
with the'r relatives and friends. 

The first literary genius he present- 
ed was Victor Hugo, "the brains of 
Paris". He emphasized the tremend- 
ous egotism of Hugo, but also men- 
tioned Hugo's deep belief and rever- 
ence in a Supreme Being;. After as- 
suming the appearance of Hugo when 
he was eighty years of age, Mr. Lan- 
don gave the speech Hugo gave at 
his eightieth birthday celebration. The 
second character was our old favorite, 
Mark Twain, and the manner in which 
Mr. Landon impersonated him when 
attending a celebration of his seven- 
tieth birthday at Delmonico's, was 
certainly appreciated. He gave the

In Annville Fire House — 
Ludwig, President 

The Day Students Association of 
Lebanon Valley College held a get- 
together party in the Annville Union 
Hose Fire Company Hall on Thursday 
evening, November 11, at eight 

The committee in charge, consisting 
of Richard Snyder (chairman), Louise 
Fencil, Leah Harpel, Pass Bollinger, 
Miriam Muth, and Carol Brinser, ar- 
ranged .such a novel program that the 
ice of formality was immediately 
broken. During the grand march, 
each one was given a slip of paper 
wiht the name of an old-time song on 
it. Then the party was divided into 
groups according to the songs which 
they were to sing in a contest. The 
"Old Gray Mare" songsters were the 
best lunged folks in the hall. 

This party was not without senti- 
ment, for a wedding took place dur- 
ing the course of the evening. The 
bride was Miss Hesselgesser, in no 
other person than Miss Louise Fencil, 
and the groom Mr. Huffenduffer, Mr. 
Earl Fornwalt. The mothers, fathers 
brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, and 
many-in-laws of both the Hesselgesser 
and Huffenduffer families were pres- 
ent for the occasion. It was a very 
laborate church wedding, with ushers,, 
flower girls, bridesmaids, and a best 
man. The bride and her attendants 
carried beautiful bovquqets of t':e 
sweet-smelling corn fodder, which is 
in bloom at present. The bridal party 
marched down the aisle to the strains 
of Lohengrin's Wedding March, play- 
ed on that Peculiar instrument, the 
imagination, by the noted artist, Mr.

The fifty-sixth anniversary of 
Clionian Literary Society was 
served, Friday evening, November 19, 
in Engle Conservatory. Clio has nev- 
er witnessed a more auspicious occa- 
sion. From the ranks of the alumni 
and from the multiude of her friends 
came an eager, interested audience. 

The first part of the pi'ogram paid 
splendid tribute to the musical tal- 
2nt of the organization. Violet Krone 
and Grace Daniel, both held their hear- 
ers because of their mastery of organ 
technique. Benetta Burrier rendered 
a group of songs in her own charm- 
ing manner. No one would dare to 
disprove the fact that she is a de- 
lightful entertainer. This half of the 
program also included the invocation 
by Grace Snyder Martin, a graduate 
with the class of 1919, as well as the 
president's welcome by Myra Shaeffer, 
The society was indeed fortunate in 
obtaining the services of Mrs. Martin, 
who is in this country for a time, be- 
fore returning to the mission field in 
Africa. To Myra Shaeffer, president 
of the society belongs much credit for 
the success of the affair and no wel- 
come could have meant more than her 
welcome to Clio's guests. 

Fairyland was discovered last night.

Ohio State Intelligence Test, 
Form 9, Given to Frosh 

Upon Entrance 

During the fall of 1925, the faculty 
inaugurated the practice of giving a 
Standardized Intelligence Test to all 
incoming students. This test was giv- 
en to all new students by the Depart- 
ment of Education and Psychology, 
wit.i the assistance of the Registrar 
and the students specializing in the 
field of Education. The above exam- 
ination was given during the first 
days of the school year. The students 
enrolled in Educational Tests and 
Measurements assisted in scoring, tab- 
ulating, and compiling the data. 

This year, Form 9 of the Ohio State 
Intelligence Test was given to 138 in- 
coming students, of which 124 were 
Freshmen. The data obtained were 
taken for the results of the scores of 
124 Freshmen in order to ascertain 
a better comparison of the data of the 
former year with that of the present 
one. Last fall, Form 7 of the Ohio 
State Intelligence Test was given to 
one hundred Freshmen. Forms 7 and 
'9 have about the same degree of diffi- 
culty, having the same number of 
questions, the only difference being in 
the form of the test. 

The highest possible score for these 
tests is three hundred ninety-five 
points. The following figures will 
show the comparative distribution

It causes us great sorrow to hear that one of our former grad- 
uates, of last year's class, has passed into the great beyond. He was 
well known in athletic circles in and about the school. He was loved 
and honored by his fellow-students and held a place of high esteem 
in the hearts of the faculty. 

It does not seem possible to us that Death could with such sudden- 
ness take one who was so worthy to live. But though his career was 
thus cut short, his memory will not be erased from our minds. We 
shall not forget our former classmate — Walter Krause. 


Wbat does this season mean to you? 
Is it the time to be sorrowful and sad? 

The leaves have changed from green to red, yellow, ana 
brown and have fallen to the earth. The rains have been mingled 
with the fall of beautiful, white snowflakes, accompanied by 
sharp, cold winds. The days have become shorter and we enjoy 
the warm comforts of indoors. 

All these things point to the sad and sorrowful tides of life 
when beautiful, light, gay things have given way to sadness. 
"Every cloud has its silver lining." After this period of seeming 
sadness and sorrow comes the reviving spring, with refreshing 
showers, when all nature rises to the awakaening call of its 

Long ago, a little band of people chose this season of the 
year to thank their Maker. All sgins of the approaching winter 
were at hand, but they thought not of these things. Before 
them lay the harvest, a plentiful one, as the result of their labors 
and around them were their neighbors, friendly tribes of Indians. 
Being grateful for these conditions, which were far superior to 
those of the preceding year; these folks, the Pilgrims, set aside 
one day to give thanks to God. 

Yeard after year, we have commemorated this day, as a day 
of national thanksgiving for the bounties of life. Not always are 
we thankful for the same blessing, but there has always been 
some predominant reason for national thanksgiving. 

As the nation thanks God for His guidance and ledership, let 
each of us give our personal thanks to our God. Give thanks for 
your life ; the smile that thrills every heart, even the stranger's ; 
the song that gives the burdened soul a bit of light; and the deed 
of kindness that helps the wandered. 

Then ask for guidance through the coming year that we 
may look upon the season as the beginning of a new life. So 
when again we meet this season, we may meet it with the true 
reason and spirit of thanksgiving.

In the history of our word "person" for the human being, the 
individual, we have an illuminating example of the romance that 
is in words. 

It is quite true that not every person is an indivdual in the 
strict sense of the word — that is, not all have indiduality. Now 
can all of us escape the indictment of not being always strictlv 
ourselves! But it would hardly be fair to say that we are all 
actors, that our personalities are masks! 

Yet such is the significance of the word "person" speaking 
in accordance with its origin, that is the implication when you 
refer to a person or persons! For the word comes from the 
Latin "persona," meaning mask, and the reference was originally 
to the mask used by actors in the theatricals of the ancients. Sub- 
sequently the term came to be applied to the character who wore 
the mask, and in its survival through time it acquired the modern 
significance of any individual. 

The Band, tie Band, Lebanon Val- 
ley's Blue and White Band is nc 
longer a dim dream, no longer a meie 
possibility. Our dream has come true 
It's here living, pulsating, throbbing, 
shining with a new snare drum and 
drum accessories; glittering with thr^e 
recently purchased horns and a re- 
juvenated base harn. We have the 
equipment, the men (twenty of them), 
and the leader. The college has en- 
gaged as leader Mr. Carmany, very 
arable and efficient leader of the 
Annville Band. The results of his ef- 
forts are already visible. 

Boys back the band, 
The band backs the boys!

6 and 41 to defeats of the past two 


On the other hand, Lebanon Valley 
has been bested in the larger number 
of her contests, but she has shown 
that she has a great fighting combi- 
nation. The squad showed at its very 
best before Villanova in the opening 
g-ani'3 at Hairrisburg. In this contest, 
they took advantage of every oppor- 
tunity and succeeded in piling up a 
30 to 12 score against the Main Line 
aggregation. Four set-backs in a row 
followed this victory. Penn State, 
Muhlenburg and Geo'rgetown ran up 
a total of 88 points, while Lebanon 
Valley could garner but ten. Mt. St. 
Mary's presented a team with a record 
for the Lebanon Valley squad to strike 
at in Lebanon. The Blue and White 
gridders killed the chance of the Em- 
mittsburg eleven for a victory in the 
first half and administered a 20 to 13 

Better than ever was the fighting 
spirit of the Mylin coached men shown 
in the game with Dickinson at Car- 
lisle. Trailing their own ten-yard line 
lust one minute and 23 seconds be- 
fore the close of the game, the Ann- 
ville collegians uncorked an aerial at- 
tack that put across the touchdown 
and left Dickinson stunned and breath- 
less. Piersol's educated toe added the 
extra point that meant victory for the 
third time in seven starts. 

T % e Gelbelrt-Smgley combination 
functioned almost perfectly against 
Dickinson and it can be counted upon 
to furnish some real thrills in the 
Albright game. Then there is the 
well-trained toe of Peck Piersol that 
is also to be feared. Both teams are 
saving their best brand of football 
for the holiday encounter and some 
new tricks that have not yet been un- 
covered should keen the spectators on 
tip-toe during th entire game. Both 
schools will be out en masse when the 
teams line up, and whatever the out- 
come, a real battle can be looked for.

Everybody said so, when the curtain 
roiled up to the roof, revealing the 
court of a king. Thanet was all that 
a king should be, who with his beauti- 
icA queen liildegrade, ruled over the 
k.ngdom of Estemaine. The court was 
happy but with an overtone of sad- 
aess, Dorinda, lovely Princess anc; 
daughter of Thanet and Hildegarde. 
was soon to fall under a fairy spell. 
From her dungeon cell, was 
the Hag of Estemaine, ugly and un- 
kept. It was she, who had foretold 
the coming of the spell and now, be- 
fore the king and queen, she uttered 
her frightful words once more. Ac- 
cording to his promise Thanet ordered 
aer chains to be removed. Then the 
ling revealed her identity, as the eld- 
est fairy, who sixteen years before 
remained unbidden to the feast which 
marked the birthday of Princess Dor- 
inda. Now she disappeared amidst a 
terrible din. In fulfillment of th° 
curse the princess pricked her thumb 
with a spindle and the magic sleep 
came over all the court. One hundred 
years later, Prince Halmar with his 
enchanted kiss wakened Dorinda, ac- 
cording to the prophecy. 

Esther Walmer as Thanet and Nelda 
Spatz were ideal in their respective 
roles of king and queen. Berenice 
Hoover, the slender fair-haired Prin- 
cess, entered a picture in a dream, at- 
tended by Estrella, in reality, Olga 
Freeman. Our hearts were full of 
humourous pity for the jester of the 
ourt and bursting with mirth at sight 
of the seneschal. These two parts 
were ably played by Myra Shaeffer 
and Mairy Buch and added spice to a 
del icious pudding. The character of 
the Hag of Estemaine was splendidly 
revealed by Luella Lehman. Eleanor 
Snoke, as Prince Halmar and Made- 
line Mark and Nelle Rabenstine, as 
his attendants, gave vent to their 
stage feelings with alternate serious- 
ness and fun. The two right-hand 
men of the king, Karen and Giraldus. 
when out of the fairytale, are called 
Leah Harpel and Gladys Buffiffington. 
They were so delightful in their stage 
roles that one could wish them in a 
fairytale forever.

What are you doing to make 
this a better institution, along 
every line'/ We can't all be the 
president of the men's Senate or 
president of "jigger board," ana 
some oi us, because we can not 
be the whole "show", just do not 
want to do anything in any 
pilose oi work. But remember 
that it is the little things that 
count. Do the little things you 
are asked to do, even if they do 
seem worthless at the time, they 
may prove quite worthwhile in 
the future when you are out of 
college. Coming across campus, 
such defenseless remarks as: 
"Grades don't mean anything" 
and "I'm not working for 
grades" are current at this time 
of the year. Grades upon seri- 
ous consideration, while certain- 
ly not an admirable goal in them- 
selves, are nevertheless indica- 
tions and measures of the degree 
to which trie more fundamental 
values of college are being at- 
tained. We might say "Well, 
this is only mid-semester and 
these grades aren't as important 
as those at the end." Perhaps 
not. But this brings' us back to 
our subject of little things. It 
was a little thing for a cow to 
kick over a lantern in a shanty, 
but it left Chicago in ashes. So 
beware! Upon little things hinge 
the great things of the world 
and of history. Henry Ward 
Beecher lost one vote which 
would have made him superin- 
tendent of the railway. But if 
he had received that one vote, 
America would have lost one of 
her greatest preachers. 

From little things there grow 
the greater things. A small 
acorn gives rise to a mighty oak. 
The cry of the baby Moses at- 
tracted the attention of Phar- 
aoh's daughter and gave the He- 
brews a lawgiver and leader. All 
life is made up of little things. 
The happiness of our lives is 
made up of trifles — little kind- 
nesses, pleasant words, friendly 
smiles and deeds for the one next 
to us. The little things can give 
us our inspirations. Is life bor- 
ing to you ? Why not be an op- 
timist and look on the bright 
side of life. Instead of finding 
fault with the things done in 
school, do your little bit to help 
uplift the school, regardless of 
your class standing. Those who 
love Lebanon Valley College will 
do this ! The reputation of our 
college depends upon the little 
things that we put into it.

Duiiing the month of November, per- 
haps as at no other time, we are 
l.fted out of our own little world and 
reminded of our bigger responsibili- 
ties. We think especially of our great 
international relationships and prob- 
ably the more thoughtful ones of us 
pause long enough to question the 
reality of these international and in- 
terracial affiliations. Some of us must 
ask ourselves that question, "What 
makes up my mind on international 
problems?" Then after mediating we 
sometimes find it even moire difficult 
to do anything concrete. The interna- 
tionally-minded student at L. V. C. 
is, however, particularly fortunate. 
He has the high privilege of actually 
taking part in a vital work in that, 
darkest of the dark corners of tne 
world — Africa. 

The World Fellowship Committees 
of the Y. W. C. A. and The Y. M. C. A. 
aire planning to stage the annual 
Martin Fund campaign sometime be- 
tween the Thanksgiving and the* 
Christmas vacations. Most of us 
known that this fund is used entirely 
for the support of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. 
Martin at Albert Academy, Sierre 
Leonne, Africa. Both Mr. and Mrs. 
Martin are Lebanon Valley graduates. 
We had an opportunity to hear them 
tell something about their work with 
the natives. We are indeed proud to 
have them represent us in Africa. 

A week of prayer will be observed 
in connection with the campaign dur- 
ing which time chapel services will 
be conducted by students or outside 
speakers. Some systematic method 
for raising our quota of money will 
also be submitted. Some one has said 
we w.ll give our money first, ourselves 
second, and our prayers last of all. 
May we unite our prayers, our money, 
and ourselves in the interest of a uni- 
versal brotherhood! You will want to 
have a snare in this project.

Band lined up for a parade following 
the game, either dropped dead or else 
disbanded for they were seen no more. 
Lebanon Valley students, many having 
hopes, others feeling we were defeat- 
ed, left the grandstands to give vent 
to their spirits and emotions. The 
team needed one point to win the 
game. The mighty Piersol came to 
light as the real hero when he booted 
the placement kick through the mid- 
dle of the bars, giving Lebanon Val- 
ley the score. Players were carried 
off the field and some nearly approach- 
ing maniacs began to celebrate the 
marvelous victory. One often reads 
of games of th's nature in books, but 
this was an exception. At the final 
pass of the game when the touch- 
down was made, as the ball left the 
center's hands the time was up, but 
the play had to be completed. Also 
the trial for the extra point must be 
given. The greater majority of the 
People at the game will lay aside all 
superstition of carrying rabbit's feet 
and so forth for luck, and admit that 
Lebanon Valley decisively outplayed 
the Dickinson team. 

They scored their touchdown in the 
first quarter on a deceiving end run, 
but were held in check throughout the 
entire game. The opposed team was 
m a good position to make a second 
count but the fighting spirit of Leba- 
non Valley held the reins and naugflit 
^as accomplished. In the second per- 
1( >d Lebanon Valley got the ball to the 

yard line but failed to come through 
a touchdown.

a U-around man and everywhere the

M. L, Stokes as guide, on a tour of 
Canada. Boarding a train at Toronto 
we journeyed westward through Que- 
bec, Montreal, Sarina, the home of 
Prof. Stokes, . over the great wheat 
producing plains, and finally arrived 
at the Pacific coast. Not one mem- 
ber of the party was tired from travel 
and all wanted to go further. 

The duties of guide were then as- 
sumed by Henry Aungst, who took 
us for a tour through New York City. 
This visit was very instructive and all 
who were with Mr. Aungst learned to 
like his home town. The next place 
visited was the Sesqui with John 
Hafer in charge of the views. Many 
who had already seen the Sesui ex- 
hibition remarked that they enjoyed 
this second visit more than the first. 

The party then became poetic, as 
Wilson Lewis entertained with several 
scenes of the country as painted by 
great poets. Walter Waggoner's tour 
through Kalo was the closing feature. 
Every one who was present enjoyed 
the program and it is hoped that 
many more interesting places may 
be viewed before the close of the pres- 
ent year. 



Delphian Hall was the scene of a 
Thanksgiving Tea, held by the Del- 
phian Literary Society, Friday, Nov- 
ember 23. Seasonal decorations added 
much attraction to the setting. Mem- 
bers of the society presented a very 
interesting programme, which was 
graced with a clever musical comedy 
or burlesque, accompanied by a uni- 
que orchestra. After the programme 
a social hour was enjoyed, during 
which tea and other dainties were 
served. The programme was as fol- 
lows :

ally good. Singley, Fox, Bendigo and 
Cunjack, receiving passes' of no less 
than 25 yards each made spectacular 
catches to make the passes count. 
Piersol's toe, we know will always 
help us to victory, as it did aga n i:: 
this game. 

Ie was the first time for a few weeks 
fc at . the varsity or a greater part of 
them were playing together, as injur- 
ies kept a few from participating in 
the previous games. The whole team 
:layed remarkably well, and showed 
the good old fight for which our Alma 
Mater is noted. 

The students at the game, a large 
i mber of them, helped in their un- 
tiring cheers. Dickinson was joyous 
when their team was ahead; Lebanon 
Valley was just as joyous when their 
team 'was behind in the score — for 
they had hope and expectations — 
something for which to look forward 
and they experienced and saw it. The 
Dickinson students left in disgust — a 
:oor way to show school spirit — even 
when a team is losing. 

As a result of this victory, Lebanon 
Valley students will have a holiday 
Monday to celebrate this spectacular 
game with the more spectacular end- 
ing. Three cheers for Lebanon Val- 
ley and the mighty team.

Self. Tne ring ceremony was used. 
Fortunately, no one had to stretch his 
magination to visualize a preacner, 
oecause the knot was tied by no other 
minister than the famous Dr. Butter- 
wick, of Lebanon Valley College. 

After this excitement, the previous- 
ly arranged groups were formed 
again, and each one had to give a 
pantomine illustrating some well 
known advertisement. An eating re- 
lay contest proved to be a very num- 
erous number when sticky taffy, dry 
crackers, apples, and pears, some of 
them wormy, had to be gobbled down 
by the members of the teams. Many 
other stunts provoked much laughter 
and merriment. 

In the meantime Dr. Butterwick's 
knot seemed to have weakened to such 
an extent that it became necessary to 
stage a court scene for divorce pro- 
ceedings. Of course everything was 
strictly parliamentary, for the judge, 
the honorable Pass Bollinger, had a 
huge mallet which he used not infre- 
quently. The jury, composed of six 
men and six women, the witnesses, 
the opposing lawyers, the defendant 
and presecutor, and even an aspirant 
newspaper reporter enthusiastically 
played their parts. Mrs. Huffenduffer 
was sueing her husband for alienation 
of af-or-confections, as the case may 
be. There seems, however, that an- 
other women was involved, after very 
lengthy and detailed court proceed- 
ings, Mrs. Huffenduffer was granted 
her divorce, and her husband was giv- 
en a 30 days sentence. 

the hall was artistically decorated 
with blue and white crepe paper and 
the music throughout the evening was 
furnished by an electric victrola. Dr. 
Butterwick was the chaperon, and 
both he, Mr. Ludwig and Mr. Wag- 
goner made a few remarks before the 
last but not least number, the refresh-

The program of Friday evening, 
November 12, which was given en- 
tirely by Freshmen, was a splendid 
success. The older members of the 
society are gratified to see such abil- 
ity and spirit in the men who have 
have just entered. There is every in- 
dication that Philo is about to enjoy 
the best year in its history. 

After the usual devotional exer- 
cises by Chaplain Zwally, the fresh- 
men render the program in splendid 
style. Elwood Meyers gave a pessi- 
mistic oration which might have filled 
all those present with gloom had they 
believed he was really conscientous in 
his utterances. His oration was fol- 
lowed by a vocal solo by Lewis Can- 
dano, who sang Benduin's Love Song, 
sing-ing in his native language; Frank 
Hoffman gave a rather optimistic view 
of "Freshman Trouble,'' although most 
of his audience expected to hear a 
rather mournful tale. Samuel Zappia 
added pep to the meeting with his 
cheerful account of "What we will do 
to Dickinson and Albright." We hope 
his predictions will be fulfilled. The 
feature of the program was the fresh- 
man quartette, which sang several 
selections and ended the program with 
"Alma Mater," in which every one 
joined. All those taking part on the 
program were congratulated by the 
other members of the society. 

The program of November 19 was 
brief, due to the Clionian Anniversary 
which took place later in the evening. 
The program was in keeping with the 
approaching holiday season. It con- 
sisted of the following numbers:

The 1928 Quittapahilla staff 
is hard at work, and affairs are 
taking shape. On the whole, 
the staff is receiving splendid 
co-operation, but the wo'rk is 
being materially held up by the 
neglect of many upper classmen 
to have their photos taken. Va- 
rious appeals, over a period of 
five weeks, have given rather 
disappointing results. 

Other means of co-operation 
for the student body are prompt 
turn-outs fo>r all group pictures 
and immediate replies to the re- 
quests for snap-shots. The 
amount of snaps handed in so 
far has been discouraging. The 
interest and value to the indi- 
vidual student of having his 
snap-shot appear in the "Quit- 
tie" should be an added reason 
for answering these calls. 

The business staff is prepar- 
ing for a monster drive for sub- 
scriptions some time in Decem- 
ber. Every loyal student of 
L. V. will want a copy of this 
year's bigger and better book. 
The business manager's aim this 
year is "A Book for Every Stu- 
dent". Watch for announce- 

Don't forget that by helping 
us to put out "A Bigger and 
Better Quittie" you put the old 
school one step nearer "A Big- 
ger and Better Lebanon Valley". 
Everybody help!

t'amous b.rthday speech that Twain 
delivered on that occasion. After 
Twain came another of our great 
American writers, Edgar Allen Poe. 
In Poe, an entirely different type of 
character was presented. Mr. Landon 
first gave a sketch of Poe's life, and 
stated that his morals were not near 
as low as they have often been ex- 
pressed. In his make-up, Mr. Landon 
showed that Poe had a melancholy ap- 
pearance, and when he recited "Anna- 
bel Lee," he affected his audience even 
as much as Poe himself might have 
done. Prom Poe, Mr. Landon turner 
to a more amiable character, the 
world-famous humorist, Bill Nye. He 
gave Bill Nye's famous address on the 
"American Boy," and imitated Nyes 
practice of the "theory of poetry of 
motion," much to the delight of the 
audience. The impersonations were 
ended by a presentation of the dean 
of American poets, Henry Wadsworth 
Longfellow. He impersonated him at 
the time when Longfellow gave the

Mr. Landon kept up a running dis-

when he had his back toward the au-

there were no dull moments in the 
entire program. Without doubt, this

ciated numbers which have ever been

Blue And White 
Again Humbles 
Ancient Rivals 

Local Gridders Finish Season in 
Fine Style on Turkey 

Lebanon Valley, the old time Jinx 
of Albright, repeated its usual role by 
completely trampling upon the toes of 
the latter Thanksgiving Day to the 
tune of 16-3, in probably the best 
game ever played between these rival 
colleges. Lebanon Valley again dis- 
played its superior ability and team 
work which caused our rival Albright 
to taste defeat as it probably has 
never tasted it before. Albright, hav- 
ing a very successful season, was de- 
termined to win, but the local team 
was more determined, and as a result 
made the former team seem as feather 
before a cyclone charge of Lebanon 
Valley fighting spirit. Lebanon Val- 
ley never "quits" until the final 
whistle of the referee has blown and 
if then defeated will admit it openly. 

We do not base our defeats as a re- 
sult of accidents. Albright, on mature 
consideration, decided that the Schuyl- 
kill and Lebanon alley games, which 
they lost, were accidents. Naturally 
so, for when a team cannot avoid ac- 
cidents, they surely will happen. Al- 
bright could not avoid these accidents: 
They had to happen. The power of 
avoiding the onslaught was too weak 
against the mighty Lebanon Valley. 

The local team was predicted to lose 
this great game of the season; but 
predictions are as vain as a needle in 
a haystack. Albright outweighing 
Lebanon Valley almost to the man, 
looked in good form — before — but not 
during the game. However they suc- 
ceeded in obtaining a very skilfully di- 
rected field goal in the first half. It 
was cleverly done but that could not 
hold the local spirit. The rival team 
was leading therefore 3-0 at the end 
of the first half. Albright rooters 
were hilarious; Lebanon Valley root- 
ers were justly the same and why

In Many Years 

With the Loss of Only a Few 
Varsity Men a Successful 
Year is Expected 

With four victories and four de- 
feats Lebanon Valley closed a success- 
ful football season for the year 1926. 
The losses were received at the hands 
of Penn State 35-0; Temple 13-3; Geo- 
rgetown 34-7; and Muhlenberg 6-0. 
The victories were turned against Vil- 
knova 30-12; Mt. St. Mary's 20-13; 
Dickinson 7-6; and Albright 16-3. 

The football schedule for 1927 has 
t^e local team matched against Penn 
State, Brown University, Muhlenberg, 
Vil'anova, Mt. St. Mary's, Schuylkill 
a,1 d Albright. A pending game with

Annual Pageant 
To-night After 
Turkey Dinner 

Christian Association Sponser 
Pageant "The Christ- 
mas Beautiful" 

To-night in Engle Conservatory a 
Christmas pageant of unusual attrac- 
tiveness will be presented under the 
name of "The Christmas Beautiful." 
At this annual affair the story of the 
birth of Christ is re-enacted by mem- 
bers of the student body. 

''The Christmas Beautiful" brings 
to us again the old, old tale which 
has not changed even when told in a 
modern home in the year of our Lord 
1926. Into the home from the past 
come Mary and Joseph, the Wise Men 
and the Shepherds and even the inn- 
keeper. An Angel chorus is not the 
least important part of the perform- 
ance. With the birth of Christ, 
Christianity enters the world and 
names her followers. 

One reason why this pageant should 
be especially interesting to all is the 
fact that it was written by a student, 
Miss Ruby See, who is also directing 
the production. Our school spirit, too, 
should be manifest not only for this 
reason but also because we will miss 
something very worthwhile if we re- 
main away. Besides we need to get 
into close touch with the spirit of

Charles Gelbert 
Elected Captain 
For 1927 Season 

Annual Football Banquet Given 
to Team at Chef's Place — 
Gossard Awards "L" 

The annual banquet for football 
men was held at Chef's on Thursday 
evening, Dec. 3. At that time Charles 
Gelbert was elected Captain for the 
1927 season. During the past three 
years ''Charley" has been a big light 
in football, and has won mention for 
himself and the school, from sports 
writers all over the country. We are 

:e the coming season will be a suc- 
cess with him as pilot of the team. 

The men then feasted on turkey 
which is said to have been delicious. 
Doctor Gossard, as toastmaster spoke 
several words of praise for the squad 
and its coach, whom he then called 
on to speak. Coach Mylin thanked 
the team for their co-operation during 
the past season, and expressed his re- 
grets that we must loose four good 
men this year through graduation. He 
advised hard study along with athlet- 
ics, as it is his aim to have athletes 
of high scholastic standing. 

The other speakers were: Professors 
Butterwick, Wagner and Gingerich, 
Jr. Marshall, graduate manager Nit- 
rauer, Captain Fox, Captain-elect Gel- 
bert and Hon. A. S. Kreider, President 
of the Board of Trustees. Mr. Kreider 
commended Dr. Gossard and Coach 
Mylin on producing such a successful 
team, and assured the men that he 
is with them in their efforts. Assist- 
ant manager Bruno also entertained 
with an exhibition of the Charleston. 

Dr. Gossard then presented the var- 
sity "L" to the following men: Cap- 
tain Fox, Captain-elect Gelbert, Pier- 
sol. Wood, Wheeler, Elberti, Nitrauer, 
Starr, Singley, Piela, Metoxin, Cun-

News, and E. J. Snavely, sporting 
goods dealer of Lebanon; substitute?

Three One Act 
Plays Selected 
By Junior Class 

Juniors to Portray Their Dra- 
matic Ability in Annual 

No Date Set For Presentation 

At a recent meeting of the Junior 
Class a committee consisting of 
Esther Walmer, Bernice Hoover and 
Bruce Behney was appointed to select 
a play suitable for the annual Junior 
Class play. After considerable effort 
and investigation on the part of the 
committee, three one act plays were 
selected. These were recommended 
to the class for final approval. The 
class accepted them after a brief dis- 

The three plays form a very bal- 
anced program. The group consists 
of 'Tie," a tragedy by Eugene O'Neill, 
"The Well-Remembered Voice," one 
of James Barrie's. ''Echoes of the 
War' plays, and "The Dark Lady of 
the Sonnets," a burlesqque on Shakes- 
pearke, by Bernard Shaw. All these 
plays will require deep character 
gtudy, and will call for intense acting 
on the part of the respective casts. 

The date for the presentation of the 
plays has not been set. It is likely, 
however, that they will be given 
sometime during the latter part of 
March. Dr. P. A. W. Wallace, head 
of the English department has con- 
cerned to direct the plays.

Xmas Banquet 
To Be Held At 
Chef's Place 

All Full Time Matriculated Stu-

Ghef's place will be the scene of 
the Annual Christmas banquet tonight 
at 5:30. For the first time in the hist- 
ory of the school have all full time 
matriculated students been invited to 
the banquet. In former years only 
boarding students enjoyed this an- 
nual treat. The administration en- 
deavoring to create better understand- 
ing and unity between the boarding 
and commuting students, thought that 
th.s would be a good opportunity to 
fill everyone not only with turkey, but 
with good clean school sport. Just as 
a nation divided against itself could 
not stand, neither can a school under 
similar circumstances continue to 
grow. It is hoped that at the ban- 
quet students will forget that they 
are day students, or dormitory stu- 
dents and feel that we are loyal sons 
and daughters of Lebanon Valley Col- 

From all indications this will be the 

most elaborate banquet of its kind 
ever given by the college authorities 
Quite an appetizing menu has been 
prepared by the chef. Every inch 
of available space in both banquet 
halls will be needed. In each hall 
there will be fifty per cent, day stu- 
dent and fifty per cent, dormitory 
5t dents. 

Dr. Gossard will be the toast master 
in the East Hall. Miss Wallace and 
Prof. Derickson from the faculty will

the unusually low mid-semester 
grades, especially among underclass- 
men. The old "Light-Cut" system was 
'offered as the only practical solution. 
It is hoped that this system would 
encourage work prior to 10:30 P. M. 
and at the same time discourage the 
ultra-socializing tendency. Girls who 
object to the plan as presented sug- 
gest in its stead, deprivation of social 
privileges for those of low schlastic 
standing. Another meeting for the 
purpose of adopting one solution or 
] the other will be held prior to the- 
Christmas vacation.

With so many things to be thankful for at this par- 
ticular season of the year, we cannot help but express our 
deepest sympathies to a member of the faculty and family 
who were stricken with grief when the grim victor, Death, 
took from their midst one who was dearer to them than 
life itself. 

Mrs. Andrew Bender, up until the time of her illness, 
together with her husband, played an important part and 
contributed much toward the development of a bigger and 
better Lebanon Valley. In view of these things, we give 
vent to our sympathies. 


Paul E. Witmeyer, '16, A. B., after 
teaching several years in the High 
School of Columbia, Pa., was elected 
Superintendent of Schools of that 
city. He has directed many of his 
students to his Alma Mater. 

Calvin F. Fencil, after receiving the 
baccaulaureate degree from L. V. C, 
taught in High School for several 
years. Last June he received the 
Master of Science Degree at the Uni- 
versity of Pittsburgh. This fall he 
was elected as a teacher of science 
in Thiel College, Greenville, Pa.

Christmas ! What is the real meaning of Christmas ? Just a 
merry, laughing time of exchanging gifts? Just a worry and a 
bustling to buy this and that ; fearful lest you'll forget those new 
socks for John, that scarf for Mary? Is it true we are commer- 
cializing Christmas? Are we — a Christian nation — forgetting 
the real meaning of Christmas in our mad rush for wealth ? Let 
us think. Is it true that many people no longer even take time to 
write Christmas properly, but hurriedly write Xmas? Place the 
two words side by side — Christmas, Xmas. Can we not see what 
is being done to the very spirit of the yuletide? We are taking 
Christ out of Christmas. That is commercializing it. 

We love all the beauty of that first Christmas morn, when 
angels sang glad carols to the shepherds tenderly caring for their 
sheep; when over all the earth the radiance of that bright and 
lustrous star was spread, which pointed all to Bethlehem; when 
that beautiful phrase was sung, "Fear not, I bring you glad tid- 
ings. For unto you is born this day, .in the city of David, a 
Saviour, who is Christ, the Lord." We lose the scene in the 
stable, of the wise men humbly kneeling to worship the Christ- 
Child, and offering their rich and costly gifts, while the wondrous 
radiance from the face of Mary illuminated the manger. A face 
filled with tender love and deep compassion and a kind of mystic 
wonder — wonder of what all these things might mean ; "for Mary 
kept these sayings and pondered them in her heart." Stop a min- 
ute on your way, to listen to the bleating of the sheep who shared 
that lowly dwelling with the Messiah ; shut out the complainings 
from your heart and let enter there the glad hosannas, "Glory to 
God in the highest and on earth peace, good-will toward men." 

Let us make Christmas mean more than the exchanging of 
gifts — let us put back of the gift some of the infinite love of the 
Master, and on this day let us renew our covenant of faithful 
service. Let the joy of His coming shine out of our hearts and 
lives as the glory of the wondrous star shone out from the sky 
that beautiful night of long ago.

Football at Lebanon Valley has been definitely packed in its 
winter allotment of moth balls ; the men have each stuffed away 
a portion of the huge banquet tendered them at Chef's, and so it 
is now possible for us to get a retrospective view of our season. 
Too much credit cannot be given to Coach Mylin, who began with 
a team that averaged less than 175 pounds a man. Using the best 
material left him from last year as a nucleus, he built around them 
a team which was able to come through a real stiff season with an 
even break. 

When we consider that Villanova suffered only two set-backs 
during the past season, we see that our boys deserve all of our 
praise for gaining a 30 to 12 decision over them in our first en- 
counter at Harrisburg. The game was played on a day unbearably 
warm for football, but our boys took advantage of the opportuni- 
ties offered them by the Main Line team, and emerged the vic- 
tors. Though outweighed by many pounds in this contest, Captain 
Fox and his cohorts refused to let a little matter of poundage 
stand between them and the goal posts. 

In 1925, Penn State was held to a 14-0 score in their opening 
game of the season played with the Blue and White. So much 
did this scare the Nittany Lions that they would not meet us this 
year until they had met a weaker foe for warming up purposes. 
Our 35-0 defeat this year does not show the high calibre of the 
game. Our squad played an excellent game, but they could not 
seem to break through the State defense for a score. 

Following the defeat at the hands of State, we attempted a 
come-back in the Temple contest, but we again emerged second 
best by a 13-3 score. Our team seemed decidedly below standard, 
especially in the line, for the Cherry and White Squad came 
through too often to bode good results, and our record of defeats 
rose to two. 

Muhlenberg was met on its own grounds in the next game, 
and once more the Mylinmen were forced to bite the dust in defeat 
by a 6-0 score. No discredit can be given the team for the loss of 
this game, however, for Piersol and Fox were kept from the game 
by previous injuries, while Gelbert and Nitrauer were forced to 
retire for a similar reason. In spite of the loss of these men, 
Lebanon Valley showed supremacy over their Allentown foe in 
the final three quarters, but they seemed to lack the punch nec- 
essary to force over a score. 

Defeats, like troubles, seemed to come in bunches, for the 
Blue and White gridders again went down to defeat at the hands 
of the strong Georgetown University eleven. This score was 34-7, 
and that alone sufficiently demonstrated that Lebanon Valley boys 
WERE playing football, for Georgetown is beyond all doubt one 
of the best teams in the country. Several of our regulars were 
still out because of injuries, and Hendricks had to be taken to the 
hospital suffering from a slight concussion of the brain, resulting 
from a play in the first quarter. 

The loyal and unified support of the home fans seemed to 
be the incentive which our team lacked, for when they returned 
to their home haunts at Bethlehem Steel field, they brought in the 
scalp of Mt. St. Mary's by the score of 20-13. Several regulars 
were still on the bench, and though the game was not an exhibi- 
tion of the best ability of our team, we are well satisfied with the 

Better than "The Quarterback" or "One Minute to Play" was 
the game with Dickinson at Carlisle. Battling through practically 
the entire game on the short end of a 6-0 score, our boys seemed 
doomed to defeat. Only 38 seconds remained before the final 
whistle, and the ball was 80 yards from the goal. Just like a book 
of fiction is the story of that grand finale ! Fighting for their col- 
ors, the team uncorked an aerial attack that carried them over the 
line in that brief period before the whistle. When the frenzied 
crowd had been quieted and was silently praying for the extra 
point, "Peck" Piersol pecked a hole in the inflated balloon of Dick- 
inson hopes by placing the pigskin very neatly between the goal 
posts and thus giving the Lebanon Valley rooters reason to go 

Nothing could have given the team more zest for the Thanks- 
giving Day encounter with our Albright foe than that great vic- 
tory over Dickinson. Going into that game with our old rivals 
knowing that the Red and White eleven had been given the edi?e 
and was conceded to be able to best the Blue and White our boys 
fought hard for their well-earned 16-3 victory. When the first 
half ended, the score was 3-0 against us. But in that memorable 
second half, Albright was outplayed in every department of the 
game. Piersol tied the score and then put us ahead with his mar- 
velous kicking, and Charley Gelbert put on the finishing touches 
with a touchdown early in the final quarter. Every loyal Lebanon 
Valley rooter went wild with joy, for this victory gave us an even 
break for the season, and in spite of the setbacks we suffered wp 
may well be proud of our 1926 football record 

I This and That I 

A night when the air was 
crisp, the ground was covered 
with snow, and from dusk the 
College folk were joyous. First, 
all of us, both faculty and stu- 
dents, sat down together to the 
Annual Christmas banquet, then 
after our physical appetites were 
more than satisfied, and our so- 
cial tendencies well stimulated, 
we enjoyed the next part of the 
evening's program, the Pageant. 
But this did not end the calen- 
dar of events. Last, but not 
least, we challenged the wintry 
weather and then the voices of 
the students joined in singing 
carols. Such a night will live 
in our memory always, and be 
one of the pleasant recollections 
of our College events. 

In Northern Europe the sol- 
emnities connected with the 
birth of Christ, were grated 
upon a great national holiday 
and this spirit left its indelibible 
impressions upon the carols. But 
the old heathen Yule has but it's 
coloring to the English Christ- 
mas, and it is largely to this in- 
fluence that we must attribute 
many of the traditions best 
known, as well as the most an- 
cient Christmas Carols. It seems 
probably that the direct source 
of Christmas carols, as we un- 
derstand the term, is to be found 
in impositions which were in- 
troduced between the scenes of 
the Mystery or Miracle Plays, 
the great religious and popular 
entertainment of the Middle 
Ages. The oldest known carol 
author in England was referred 
to in a 13th Century manuscript, 
but when it was written and by 
whom is unknown. This shows 
us, however, how age-old is this 
custom and the continuance of 
it has been attributed to the "de 
light it affords." May the cus- 
tom never die out — and may the 
ending always be the same, "A 
Merry Christmas." 

"First Things First." This is 
one of those convenient phrases 
tnat suits any point a person 
wishes to make. Then everyone 
using this phrase is convinced 
that what he is trying to prove 
is absolutely of foremost import- 
ance. Likewise with the person 
writing this article. The subject 
of first magnitude here is 
"Health." Are you Conserving 
Yours?" Are the demands maae 
upon us at College, plus the de- 
mands (more numerous), whicn 
we create for ourselves, robbing 
us of our best heritage — a heal- 
thy body ? Let us ask ourselves 
these questions: How much 
sleep do we get? Are we inter- 
ested in athletics? If we are, 
well and good. If not, are we 
providing for ourselves a milder 
form of exercise? Do we walk 
enough? Do we eat the right 
foods? Is our menu well bal- 

If you answered all of these 
questions, what are the sum to- 
tal findings? If the results are 
positive, you do not realize the 
importance of this question be- 
cause you don't need to now. But 
if some or all of the answers are 
"No" then you know, without a 
doubt, that it "looms large" in 
your consideration. With meet- 
ings, practices, specials of every 
nature, on hand all of the time, 
it seems imperative to call a halt 
somewhere-or Nature will ! Are 
vou convinced that Health be- 
longs in the category of "First 
Things First?"

A very impressive Vesper service 
was held by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. 
\V. C. A. in Engle Hall, Sunday even- 
ing, at 5:45. Prof. Ritchie, of the 
Bible and Greek department, deliv- 
ered an inspiring Christmas message. 
Other numbers on the program were 
vocal and instrumental music and 
readings by the students. The meet- 
ing was very well attended, and was 
regarded as one of the best joint serv- 
ices ever conducted at Lebanon Val- 
ley. The program was under the di- 
rection of Eleanor Snoke and Millard 
Miller. The program was as follows: 

Organ Prelude Grace Daniels 

Christmas Hymn 

Scripture Reading (Matt. 2:1-12).. 

Russel Oyer 

Prayer Ruth Strubhar 

Christmas Reading Madeline Rife 

Quartette — Nelda Spattz, Janet Mil- 
ler, Russel Oyer, Bruce Behney 

Address Prof. G. A. Ritchie 

Organ-Piano Duet Grace Daniels 

Alice Woy 

Christmas Reading Elmer Keiser 

Christmas Hymn 

Prayer and Benediction.. ..Dr. Gossard 
Prof. Ritchie based his remarks 
upon the visit of the wise men. After 
laying the setting, he drew a lesson 
of great significance from the state- 
ment: "Where is He that is born King 
of the Jews, for we have seen His star 
in the east and are come to worship 
Him?" He ended his remarks with 
a strong appeal to those students who 
are not Christians to seek the Christ. 
Everyone was impressed by the il- 
lustrations he used in emphasizing 
his thoughts. 

The organ-piano duet also was very 
impressive, for it consisted of the 
Christmas carols ''Silent Night" and 
' It Came Upon the Midnight Clear," 
played with a great deal of feeling 
and expression. The readings and 
quartette selections were also highly 

Without doubt, everyone present 
felt greatly inspired by the program, 
and received a new conception of the 
significance of the Christmas season.

first number on the program, which 
consisted of three Christmas carols by 
a quartet composed of Misses Rife, 
Berrier, Bachman and Hess. Viola 
Ferree then gave a piano solo, after 
which Alcesta Sclichter rendered a 
vocal selection. 

Alice Kindt offered the main feature 
of the program in the form of an 
original Christmas- story. Grace Dan- 
tel followed with a piano solo, and 
Winefied Peck completed the enter- 
tainment with a vocal solo. Refresh- 
ments were then served which con-

The Clionian Literary Society met 
in joint session with the Kalozetean 
Literary Society on Friday evening, 
Dec. 10, in Engle Hall. 

The occasion was observed by means 
of a flitting program which followed 
the plan of a Christmas tree — from 
the top down. The first number 
took the form of devotions and was 
called "The Star," ''The Trunk," ''A 
Christmas Story," adapted from one 
written by Turgenen was well per- 
formed in pantomime under the direc- 
tion of Darkes Albright. Kalo sur- 
passed the record in the lighting of 
' The Candles,' almost setting fire to 
the boughs which were bits of poetry 
orio-inating in the minds of Alice 
Kindt and Mary McCurdy. Clio 
sparkled here and there and every- 
where in "The Tinsel," Ruth Light 
and Joe Bruno furnished the fun of 
the evening in "The Needles" of wit. 
The crowning feature, however, was 
the appearance of Santa himself, as 
regularly jolly as any could be. 

The usual enjoyable social hour fol- 
lowed the prograim. Everyone voted 
"yes" for a pleasurable evening 
without much fuss but plenty of fun. 

The Clionian Literary Society takes 
this, unfortunately, belated opportun- 
ity to express gratitude and apprecia- 
tion to Miss Mary K. Wallace and 
Miss Yvonne Green for their deep in- 
terest and assistance in making the 
1926 Anniversary splendidly success- 




(Continued from Page One) 

not? They knew what was coming 
The second half always spells defeat 
for Albright. 

Hendricks started the rally on the off with a 50-yard run. From 
that time on Albright knew not where 
they were. After taking the ball for 
a few first downs and kicking back 
and forth Piersol, the mighty place- 
ment kicker, booted one over the bars 
to tie the score 3-3. Then a bit of 
tough scrimmage ensued. When Leb- 
anon Valley opened a line charge it 
soon resulted in a touchdown by Gel- 
bert, captain-elect for 1927, who play- 
ed a marvelous game throughout. 
P.ersol gained the extra point from 
placement for a total score of 10-3. 
This was not enough. Piersol was in 
good form and naturally he displayed 
it for another field goal from the 60- 
yard line. Albright became stubborn 
and tried a line attack. They succeed- 
ed to some extent — but gained little 
for the line held and tackled very skil- 
fully. Bendigo brought down Kearns 
who had succeeded in passing the line 
and defense and thereafter Albright 
did nothing. In due course of time, 
Piersol again showed great form with 
another 50-yard placement kick for a 
final score of 16-3. 

The local team with the fight of old- 
times behind them was victorious, and 
Albright took the beating of their 
lives. It is the team which can come 
from behind and win, that is recog- 
nized as a superior team. Indeed it 
was an accident; Albright could not 
avoid it. Piersol was the outstanding 
star of the day, while the backfield 
showed its true form for victory, and 
the line was invincible. The game 
will go down in history — Lebanon Val- 
ley may forrget it; but Albright can 
never wipe it from their thoughts. 

Heebie: Jones surely has a big 

Jeebie: Yeah, and such long arms 
and legs.

Wednesday evening, Dec. 8, at which 
time the following officers were

On Friday evening, December 3, the 
members of Philo again rendered a 
very fine program. This was espec- 
ially true when one considers the 
short time those on the program had 
for preparing their numbers. Sev- 
e:|l new members of Philo took part 
on the program and showed real abil- 
ity in public speaking. The program 
was as follows:

At the invitation of the members 
of the Philokosmian Literary Society, 
the Delphian Literary Society met 
with them in a joint session in Philo 
Hall, Friday evening, December 10. 
The program was arranged in ac- 
cordance with the Christmas season, 
and it consisted of many novelties 
and interesting features. All those 
who were present enjoyed the pro- 
gram and regarded it as one of the 
as follows:

the two societies. The program was

The parody by Millard Miller had 
for its characters not Santa and his 
reindeer, but Willie and his Ford. 
From the standpoint of originality and 
humor this parody was the outstand- 
ing feature of the program. Mildred 
Umholtz also showed considerable 
ability in her reading "Christmas 
Shopping." This was in monologue 
form and contained many bright 
flashes of humor. The sketch was the 
product of the Delphian-Philo play- 
wrights, Florence Dundore and Wade 
Miller. It had a well laid plot show- 
ing a phase of school life very com- 
mon at L. V. C, in the first act, but 
ended in a thrilling climax in the home 
of the parents. The caste of the 
sketch was assisted by a chorus of 
carol singers. 

After the literary session Santa 
Claus appeared and converted the 
evening's entertainment into a short 
social hour.

Students Give 
First Recital 

Students Reflect Much Credit 
on Coservatoryn Faculty 
in First Recital 

The first recital of the 1926-27 col- 
lege year was given by the advanced 
students of the Conservatory of Music 
of Lebanon Valley College in Engle 
Hall on Tuesday evening, Dec. 7, 1926. 
Every one performed their part in a 
commendable manner, and the recital 
as a whole reflected much credit on 
the faculty. The following program

The opening number, a brilliant 
Chopin waltz, was a piano solo by 
Miss Hartz. Her scale passages were 
very clear and distinct and yet the 
whole composition had the swaying 
rythm of a waltz. In direct contrast, 
Mr. Deibler, possessing a deep, full 
voice sang "The Bugler," written in 
a beautiful minor key. Allegro Pom- 
posos by Holloway, played on the 
organ by Miss Wolfe, certainly con- 
veyed the feeling expressed in the 
title, although their was a soft melody 
mingled in the pompous chords. We 
all loved the rich resonant melody in 
Litszt's Liebestraume, which worked 
up to a grand climax as love songs al- 
ways do. Miss Meyers deserves much 
commendation on the interpretation of 
her piece. 

We never tire of hearing Handel's 
'Where'er You Walk." Mr. Jennings 
very ably sang it with ease and un- 
sophistication. His second number, 
''My Dreams," by Fosti, revealed lyric

quality of his voice. Next Miss Dan- 
iels made the organ fairly sing calm 
harmonous tune in the "Londonderry 
Air," arranged by Coleman. During 
the following number we could almost 
hear weird sounds in the quiet still- 
ness of the ''May Night," while Miss 
Krone very successfully interpreted 
the composition. But the enthusiasm 
of her second piece, "The Juba 
Dance, by Dett, carried us to South- 
ern lands where the "blacks" were 
having wild dancing around blazing 
fires. However, when we heard the 
soprano voice of Miss Mae Grumbine 
singing 'All the World is Sunshine," 
we realized that we were still in 
Engle Hall. 

Miss Daniels appearing again, but 
at the piano this time, played Liszt's 
Cantique d'amour. She possesses not 
only an agile technique, but a very 
musical sense of interpretation. A 
pleasing contralto lullaby, "Sleepy 
Town," and also "April Ecstasy," by 
Speaks, were then sung by Miss Fran- 
ces Baker. The program ended in 
fine style with an organ solo, "Tocca- 
ta in G" by Dubois, played by Miss 

Student recitals are given from time 
to time to train pupils in the art of 
appearing before a public audience. 
Some folks naturally possess more of 
this ability than others, but every 
one needs the practise afforded by 
these recitals. The effect of many 
numbers, musically well rendered, is 
often spoiled by a display of nervous- 
ness and self-consciousness, or by a 
lack of poise and musical etiquette. 
It is only when an audience has a feel- 
ing of safety for the performer that 
it can fully enjoy the music. One 
notices, too, that the person who can 
put his audience at ease with a little 
smile or a slight bow, usually loses 
his own self-consciousness. On the 
other hand, an actor can only do his 
best when be feels that his audience 
is with him and is lending its undivid- 
ed attention. Hence — we see that our 
student recitals will produce better 
actors and more appreciative audienc- 
es in Lebanon Valley College. 




The Up-to-the-Minute Reader's Club 
met at the home of Dr. Wallace Mon- 
day evening, December 6, for an even- 
ing study and discussion of Eugene 
O'Neill's works. The first play for 
consideration, 'Desire Under the 
Elms," was presented in a thorough 
and detailed manner by Darkes Al- 
bright. In ihis vivid portrayal of 
scenes and characters, Mr. Albright 
set forth the author's claim as a mod- 
ern writer and the traits Which have 
given him recognition. "Bound East 
for Corinth," a short one act play 
was synopsized in a pleasing way by 
Mary McCurdy. The last number of 
the program, by Mary McLanachan, 
was a resume of "Emporer Jones." 

Steady progress is being realized in 
the Reader's Club. This year's pro- 
grams have included the works of 
Lindsay, Frost, Sanburg and others 
of the moderns. The club also enjoyed 
an evening at Lebanon where they saw 
Ibsen's 'Ghosts." The club has also 
increased in numbers, and with this 
growth in numbers and interest, they ■ 
hope to accomplish a great deal this 
year. This should mean an enlarge- 
ment of this library and a greater I 
appreciation and understanding of 
modern writers. i
